Light pumps drugs from nanoparticles

Abstract:
Nanoscale packages from which drug molecules can be released in controlled pulses have been developed by a team of Chinese chemists1.

This drug-delivery system is controlled by light. A flash of ultraviolet light changes the shape of molecules in the walls of the nanocompartments where the drug is held, apparently opening up pores that let the drug leak out. A flash of visible light converts the molecules back again, sealing the openings.
