Cyclodextrin-Modified Zeolites as Drug-Delivery Nanocontainers

Zeolites modified with aminoalkoxysilanes and cyclodextrin show different uptake and release properties depending on which silane is used

Multifunctional nanocontainers for imaging, targeting, and drug release are a main research area in bio-nanomedicine. Jurriaan Huskens and colleagues, University of Twente, The Netherlands, have functionalized nanoporous zeolite L crystals with β-cyclodextrin (CD) to give multifunctional systems that have the potential for encapsulation of drug molecules inside the zeolite pores and noncovalent attachment of other, for example, targeting, ligand molecules on its surface.
