Stimuli Responsive Polymeric Nanocarriers for Drug Delivery Applications, Volume One: Types and Triggers discusses, in detail, the recent trends in designing biodegradable and biocompatible single-responsive polymers and nanoparticles for safe drug delivery. Focusing on the most advanced materials and technologies, evaluation methods, and advanced synthesis techniques stimuli-responsive polymers, the book is an essential reference for scientists with an interest in drug delivery vehicles.
Chaper 20 in Volume 1 is on Responsive cyclodextrins as polymeric carriers for drug delivery applications. This chapter focuses on cyclodextrins and their derivatives as stimuli-responsive polymeric nanocarriers for drug delivery and biomedical applications. The responsive cyclodextrins are able to control drug release in response to either exogenous stimuli such as temperature, light intensity, and magnetic field or endogenous stimuli like pH, enzyme concentration, and oxidation-reduction potential. Dual-stimuli-responsive properties of cyclodextrins are reported by researchers in the field of drug delivery.
