Smart polymeric systems are required that are able to release a therapeutic drug with controlled delivery. Herein we investigated the pH triggered release of ibuprofen from a polymeric nanoparticle system prepared using ring-opening metathesis polymerisation. The co-polymerisation of ibuprofen and poly(ethylene)glycol monomers followed by self-assembly produced a nanoparticle system that was shown to be stable at neutral pH but releases ibuprofen in alkaline conditions
