Resumo

This work describes the synthesis of a new glycosylated conjugate copolymer, GlcNAc-PEO75-PPO30-PEO75-GlcNAc (GlcNAc-PluronicF68-GIcNAc), using click chemistry from Pluronic (R) F68 and propargyl-2-N-acetamido-2-deoxy-beta-D-glucopyranoside. Micelles were prepared by the self-assembly of GlcNAc-PluronicF68-GlcNAc in phosphate-buffered solution. The critical micelle concentration was determined by fluorescence spectroscopy, and the value was found to be equal to 5.8 mg mL(-1). The Gibbs free energy (Delta G) of micellization is negative, indicating that the organization of amphiphiles is governed by the hydrophobic effects in an entropy-driven process. The scattering characterization of GlcNAc-PluronicF68-GlcNAc micelles showed a hydrodynamic radius of 8.7 nm and negative zeta potential (-21.0 +/- 0.9 mV). The TEM image evidences the spherical shape of the objects self-assemble into highly regular micelles having a mean diameter of 10 nm. The SAXS profile confirmed the spherical shape of the assemblies comprising a swollen PPO core (R-core = 2.25 nm) stabilized by PEO chains following Gaussian statistics. The results of the comet assay showed that the GlcNAc-PluronicF68-GlcNAc micelles were not genotoxic, and the cell viability test was higher than 97% for all concentrations, demonstrating that GlcNAc-PluronicF68-GlcNAc is not toxic.
