PEO-PPO-PEO surfactant exfoliated graphene cyclodextrin drug carriers for photoresponsive release

Quinn, Matthew D. J; Wang, Tao; Al Kobaisi, Mohammad; Craig, Vincent S. J; Notley, Shannon

Description

Liquid exfoliated graphene sheets were incorporated within α-cyclodextrin-triblock copolymer supramolecular hydrogels prepared with a range of polyethylene oxide and polypropylene oxide block sizes and ratios allowing control over the release properties. The strong photothermal activity of graphene was employed to externally activate drug release from within the gels using near-infrared (NIR) irradiation. These supramolecular hybrid hydrogels showed thermoreversible changes in viscosity, which...[Show more]
