Abstract

We report the preparation of a “smart” system obtained by decorating gold nanoparticles with pH responsive polymers and folic acid. The gold nanoparticle decoration is aimed at improving site-selectivity in the tumour compartment where the mild acidic conditions trigger the biorecognition of folate receptor overexpressing cancer cells.
