Abstract

Polyphenolic-, amino acids- and doxorubicin-based nanostructures are of great interest due to their multifarious applications in biomedical field as antibiotics, antioxidants, antimicrobial and anti-cancer agents. Most of the research on the polyphenolic and amino acids based nanostructures adhere to the formation of coordination complexes with metals, self-assembly techniques or chemical functionalization and crosslinking reactions. To improve the efficacy of therapeutic agents, a variety of nanoparticles have been developed for the controlled and targeted delivery of doxorubicin. These include biopolymers-based nano/microcapsules, carbon-based nanoparticles, polymer-drug conjugate, dendri..
