Mesoporous silica nanoparticles: structural design and applications

Author affiliations

Abstract

The structural properties of mesoporous silica nanoparticles are reviewed. Different strategies for the introduction of functional groups are considered. Based on the architectural features of the material, the functionalization at defined regions of the particles is described, along with the properties emerging from the corresponding site-specific modifications of their chemistry. Many applications derived from the unique architecture and chemistry of these nanostructured composite materials are shown.
