[en] Stimuli-responsive nano-materials have been playing increasingly important roles in the biomedical field due to their ability to alter the physico-chemical properties in response to external stimuli, such as temperature, pH, ionic strength, magnetic field, etc. Nanohybrids bearing an inorganic core and thermo-responsive polymer shell are particularly applicable in target delivery and controlled drug release. Poly (N-vinylcaprolactam) (PNVCL) and its copolymers, exhibiting lower critical solution temperature (LCST) where the transition between hydrophilic and hydrophobic state happens, is one of the optimal choices for this core/shell structure. Here we present the in-situ fabrication of thermo-responsive gold nanohybrids coated with a novel poly(vinyl alcohol)-b-poly(N-vinylcaprolactam) (PVOH-b-PNVCL) block copolymer prepared by the cobalt-mediated radical polymerization (CMRP). The interaction between both PVOH and PNVCL segments and gold nanoparticles was confirmed by FT-IR spectra. A sharp thermo-induced phase transition with a good reversibility upon change in temperature was detected by DLS and UV/vis spectrometer. Furthermore, the presence of hydrophilic PVOH moieties endows the gold nanohybrids with improved colloidal stability above LCST without any flocculation detected, compared with the gold nanoparticles stabilized with PNVCL homopolymer. This kind of gold nanohybrids can be envisaged as a new drug delivery vehicle.
