In this paper it is shown that when a thermosensitive hydrogel based on poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-poly(ethylene glycol)-poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (pNIPAm-PEG-pNIPAm) was transferred into water, flower-like micelles were continuously released as long as the medium was regularly refreshed. On the other hand, if the medium...
