    We prepared nanoparticles differing in morphology from double-hydrophilic block copolymer poly(ethylene oxide)-block-poly(methacrylic acid), PEO–PMA, and two types of fluorescein–[3-cobalt(III) bis(1,2-dicarbollide)] conjugates, GB176 and GB179, in alkaline buffer. GB176 molecule consists of fluorescein attached to the metallacarborane anion. In GB179 molecule, the fluorescein moiety connects two metallacarborane anions. The self-assembly is based on the unusual interaction of metallacarborane clusters with PEO blocks which form insoluble micellar cores. The GB176 containing nanoparticles are loose and irregular, while the GB179 ones are rigid and spherical. The micelles were studied by static and dynamic light scattering, fluorometry and atomic force microscopy. Since the metallacarborane conjugates act as potent inhibitors of HIV protease, the presented system is important from the point of view of drug delivery.
