Overview on Research
My research focuses on the preparation of amino-rich nano/micro/hydrogels with stimuli-responsiveness through the utilization of PAMAM dendrimers or amphiphilic reactive copolymers as building block by polymerization/crosslinking reactions using various methods, such as precipitation or miniemulsion polymerisation and microfluidics. These new microgels are employed to load multifunctional nanoparticles (e.g., Au, CuS NPs) for precision imaging and efficient photothermal therapy of tumors.
- Synthesis of dendrimer-based nano/micro/hydrogels
- Synthesis of hybrid microgels loaded with CuS for photothermal therapies
