Altering the Biodegradation of Mesoporous Silica Nanoparticles by Means of Experimental Parameters and Surface Functionalization

Figure 9

Degradation behavior of amine-, carboxyl-, and nonfunctionalized MSNPs. Amine-functionalized particles appear to be the most prone to degradation, followed by carboxylated and silanol functionalized NPs.
