Summary This book provides an insightful understanding of the mesoporous silica structure and its special properties. The details of synthesis and modification strategies are discussed by reviewing the open literature. The discussion concerning the potential of mesoporous silica in modern biomedical applications will be related to a critical analysis in the field of material science. This book will help the reader rapidly develop the necessary tools to follow the design of the different mesoporous silica-based devices presented in the various studies. The structure of the different devices is examined
