Abstract : A water-soluble and biocompatible polymer i. e. biotinylated poly(vinyl alcohol) grafted graphene oxide (GO) was used as a nanocarrier for targeted delivery of anticancer drug camptothecin (CPT). The extent of CPT release in the presence of glutathione (GSH) from GO-biotinPVA-CPT was monitored by the increase in the fluorescence intensity at λmax 450 nm. The cell specific (HeLa) antiproliferative activity of GO-biotinPVA-CPT makes it suitable to be used in targeted delivery of chemotherapeutics to cancerous cells.
