Expanding hyperbranched polyglycerols on hydroxyapatite nanocrystals
What is it about?
Hyperbranched polyglycerols (HPG) were covalently grown from hydroxyapatite nanocrystals (HAP NCs) via surface-initiated anionic ring-opening multibranching polymerization (SI-AROMP) of glycidol
Why is it important?
A model drug ibuprofen (IBU) was employed to evaluate the drug loading/release behavior of the HPG-g-HAP nanocomposites. In vitro IBU release profile suggested the nanocomposites as a promising drug delivery system (DDS).
