PEG-SS-PPS: Disulphide block copolymers for intracellular drug delivery

S. Cerritelli, J. A. Hubbell

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


The use of disulfide block copolymers for an intracellular drug delivery system was investigated. Novel [poly(ethyleneglycol)-poly(propylenesulfide)] block copolymers, which are sensitive to a reducing environment, were synthesized for the experiments. In two separate Schlenck tubes, two reactions were started at a suitable time. The results confirm that the newly formed block copolymers can be used to create drug delivery systems which respond to changes in the reductive state of their environment.
