Evaluating mesoporous materials for potential drug delivery and catalytic applications
Mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSN) have attracted significant attention in the past decade due to their unique properties such as high surface area, tunable pore size, large pore volume, controllable particle morphology and ease of surface functionalization. They have been extensively researched for their application as a potential targeted drug delivery carrier. Some research has also focussed on developing MSN-based hard templating strategies for the synthesis of other mesoporous materials such as mesoporous carbon nanoparticles (MCN) with diverse properties. In order to safely employ MSN ...
