Other examples of near-infrared (NIR)-responsive hydrogels/ structures that have been developed as delivery systems and the significant findings

Type Detail Ref.
Upconversion nanoparticles Continuous-wave NIR light (980 nm) can be used to induce the sol–gel transition and release large, inactive biomacromolecules (protein and enzyme) entrapped in the hydrogel into aqueous solution "on demand" 25
Injectable supramolecular hydrogel NIR light-responsive supramolecular hydrogel consisting of α-cyclodextrin and polyethylene glycol CPEG-modified dendrimer-encapsulated platinum nanoparticles release the entrapped therapeutic agents in an on-demand and dose-tunable fashion 37
Composite hydrogel Dopamine nanoparticle (DP) was incorporated as a highly effective photothermal agent as well as anticancer drug, bortezomib (BTZ) carrier inside a stimuli-responsive pNIPAAm-co-pAAm hydrogel 38
PEG-NH2, ssDNA-caged aptamer nanostructure NIR light-activated cancer cell targeting and doxorubicin delivery in photothermal therapy 39
