1. Technology Overview
The present invention disclosed an amphiphilic diblock copolymer represented by Formula (1) that is able to be self-aggregated to form the spherical shape polymeric micelles. These spherical shape polymeric micelles are used as drug delivery system to encapsulate anti-cancer drug doxorubicin for treating breast cancer. The amphiphilic diblock copolymer consists of a linear polyelectrolyte block and a hydrophobic block carrying a pendant benzyloxy-type dendritic moiety. The chemical structure of amphiphilic diblock copolymer is represented by Formula (1).
