Abstract: Poly(epsilon-caprolactone)/poly(ethylene glycol) (abbreviated as CE) diblock copolymers were synthesized to make core-shell type nanoparticles for all-trans-retinoic acid (atRA). Fluorescence spectroscopy showed that critical association concentration (CAC) value decreased at higher MW of CE diblock copolymer. Drug loading characteristics were studied under various experimental conditions. Drug contents and loading efficiency increased as the MW of poly(epsilon-caprolactone) (PCL) block of CE and initial drug …
