  4. Abstract:
  5. In the present research, two types of drug carriers based on mesoporous silica-coated magnetic graphene oxide, Fe3O4@GO@mSiO2, were synthesised and the pH-responsive behaviour for doxorubicin release was investigated. One type of the carrier was dendrimer-like multi ethylene amine grafted on Fe3O4@GO@mSiO2 and the other was dendrimer-like supramolecular polypseudorotaxane. Herein, α-cyclodextrin was used in the structure of supramolecular nanoparticles as a gatekeeper to inhibit the drug from escaping at neutral pH (the pH of healthy tissue). The drug release profile showed that the supramolecular nanocarrier was more sensitive to the pH changes. The content of drug release was about 100% at pH 5.5 (endosomal pH) during 48 h; but it was zero at pH 7.4. Also, the dendrimer structure facilitated the triggered release of doxorubicin
