We have synthesized light sensitive nano micelles for their applications as drug delivery agents. Various azo compounds having different dipole moment values have been covalently attached to an amphiphilic pegylated co-polymer and their light sensitive behavior has been studied in both aqueous and organic media with ultra violet light to understand the light dependent supramolecular organization.
