The exceptional properties of mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) promote facile functionalization for improved drug delivery in nanotechnology. Recent advancements in this field have experienced the potential applications of MSNs and porous silicon (PSi). Tunable pore size, large surface area, and better surface properties make the materials possible to hold large amounts of payloads and prevent premature degradation. In this chapter, we will focus on and discuss the main route of preparation and applications of MSNs and silica nanomaterials.

Keywords: Drug delivery, Electron microscopy, Mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs), Nanomaterials, Porous silica (PSi) nanoparticles.
