Suitability of porous silicon microparticles for the long-term delivery of redox-active therapeutics

Author affiliations

Abstract

Thermal oxidation of porous Si microparticles provides an inert carrier for the long-term release of the anthracycline drug daunorubicin. Without prior oxidation, porous Si undergoes an undesirable side reaction with this redox active drug.
