What is it about?

Here we describe the use of polymers that deliver drugs in response to electricity. We used the anti-inflammatory dexamethasone as a clinically relevant model drug.

Why is it important?

This is the first example in the scientific literature of the use of supramolecular polymers that deliver drugs in response to electricity.


This begins to pull together some of the streams of my past research including supramolecular chemistry, peptides and stimuli-responsive drug delivery systems in a novel way.
