(Figure Equotion Presented) Specific stimuli can be used to trigger the release of cargo encapsulated in polymer carriers in applications ranging from drug delivery to catalysis. Current approaches can be categorized in two classes: application of an external stimulus, such as light, and exploitation of environmental changes, such as chemical and enzymatic degradation (see picture). © 2010 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
