Nowadays nanoparticles, especially mesoporous materials have drawn notable attention due to their wide variety of applications. Among them, mesoporous silica and iron oxide are novel types of such materials due to their unique physicochemical properties that can enable new horizons for their application in biosensing.
As preliminary research work, a detailed study of mesoporous silica was performed. As a fundamental study, it deals with the basic concepts of mesoporous material synthesis, the required characterization, and related scientific ideas to bring its practical application.
