Strategies for Triggered Release from Polymer-based Nanostructures

The majority of polymeric nanoparticle delivery systems relies on progressive degradation for sustained diffusive release of the encapsulated substrate.1 In fact, a main challenge in the design of new delivery systems is the fabrication of materials that release their payload (therapeutic molecules,...
