Abstract

Conventional drug delivery systems have limitations according to their toxicity and poor solubility, bioavailability, stability, and pharmacokinetics (PK). Here, we highlight the importance of functionalized titanate nanotubes (TNTs) as targeted drug delivery systems. We discuss the differences in the physicochemical properties of TNTs and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and focus on the use of functionalization to improve their characteristics. TNTs are promising materials for drug delivery systems because of their superb properties compared with CNTs, such as their processability, wettability, and biocompatibility. Functionalization improves nanoparticles (NPs) via their surface modification and enables them to achieve the targeted therapy.
