Abstract

Supramolecular vesicles which can successfully encapsulate DOX and exhibit rapid drug release in a low-pH environment are constructed based on the host-guest interaction of water-soluble pillar[5]arene and a BODIPY derivative. They show remarkable combination of chemo- and photodynamic activities, suggesting a promising drug nanocarrier.
