Cargo release from polymeric vesicles under shear

Abstract:

In this paper we study the release of cargo from polymeric nano-carriers under shear. Vesicles formed by two star block polymers-A12B6C2(ABC) and A12B6A2(ABA)-and one linear block copolymer-A14B6(AB), are investigated using dissipative particle dynamics (DPD) simulations. A- and C-blocks are solvophobic and B-block is solvophilic. The three polymers form vesicles of different structures. The vesicles are subjected to shear both in bulk and between solvophobic walls. In bulk shear, the mechani...
