Nanoparticles Conjugated with Photocleavable Linkers for the Intracellular Delivery of Biomolecules

We report the synthesis and characterization of phototriggerable polymeric nanoparticles (NPs) for the intracellular delivery of small molecules and proteins to modulate cell activity. For that purpose, several photocleavable linkers have been prepared providing diverse functional groups as anchoring points for biomolecules.
