Abstract

Surface functionalization with some exciting materials using nanotechnology approach offers unprecedented advantages as a drug carrier for drug delivery applications. The surface-modified or functionalized hybrid materials provide excellent properties such as enhanced drug loading capacity, efficiency, significant drug release profiles, improved targeted drug delivery, cellular uptake, and cytotoxicity. Currently available materials comprising carbon materials, graphene oxides (GO), various metal organic frameworks (MOFs), and importantly naturally available diatoms offer better properties as a drug carrier in drug delivery applications. However, in order to make these materials superior, the surface modification plays a critical role. In this chapter, we have compiled recent developments mainly focusing on the surface functionalization for the drug delivery applications.
