Much research is being conducted to investigate the potential use of nanoparticles as an efficient drug delivery system. Important characteristics of nanoparticles that affect how they interact with biological systems include size, composition ,surface characteristics and shape. One of the many potential medical uses of nanoparticles is targeted drug delivery; nanoparticles have the potential to deliver concentrated amounts of medication to select areas of the body, reducing toxic effects in healthy areas of the body.
