During the last few years, a number of interesting drug delivery applications of mesoporous materials have been demonstrated. Mesoporous silicon has many important properties advantageous to drug delivery applications. The small size of the pores confines the space of a drug and engages the effects of surface interactions of the drug molecules and the pore wall. The size of the pores and the surface chemistry of the pore walls may be easily changed and controlled. Depending on the size and the… CONTINUE READING
