The November issue of Advanced Functional Materials highlights research by scientists from the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of Charles University in Prague, Czech Republic, regarding the design of a drug delivery system in the form of very small cerium oxide particles encapsulated in silica-based nanoparticles. This system can "smartly" react to the environment and release its cargo (cerium oxide particles) in a precisely determined environment due to the influence of radical forms of oxygen.
