Nanoscale Review graces Inaugural Cover - In the inaugural issue of Nanoscale, the RSC's newest journal, the Stoddart and Zink groups highlight the nanotechnologies that have been accessed with mesoporous silica nanoparticles decorated with smart (super)molecules as drug delivery vehicles, on a review entitled "Mechanised Nanoparticles for Drug Delivery." The Front Cover illustrates these mechanized silica nanoparticles selectively endocytosed by cancer cells. Once inside the cells, a cellular response triggers the release of the encapsulated cancer drugs, thus destroying the cancer cells.
