We demonstrate the controlled release of pyrene, as a model hydrophobic molecule, from self-assembled bicontinuous nanospheres formed from an amphiphilic block copolymer. The bicontinuous polymer nanospheres act as efficient nanocarriers and the incorporation of hydrophobic poly(alkyl methacrylate) blocks introduces a temperature responsive component to the hydrophobic core.
