Micelles have become one of the main players in nanoparticle research. Although micelles have been around for decades, it was not until recently that these particles were finally utilized in advanced drug delivery systems. Micelles formation is an efficient method for delivering poorly water-soluble drugsand its usefulness is in particular applicable to chemotherapeutic agents. Polymer-based micelles have been the main focus of researchers in the past several years. Cancer has unique characteristics that can be exploited for drug delivery. Understanding micelle structure is a key to realizing their potential as novel drug delivery systems. Micelles are surfactant molecules, which aggregate in aqueous or oily liquids.Synthesis of the polymeric micelle is a tricky task itself. However, once formed, micelles must achieve the proper therapeutic effect, last for a desired amount of time, and be eliminated with ease without any complications. As knowledge of micelle structure and kinetics grows, drug delivery utilizing polymeric micelles will become smarter. The basis of any drugâs structure is its inherent components and size.
