Nanoparticles and modified nanoparticles are used in biological and medical sciences as liposomes, polymeric micelles, block ionomer complexes, dendrimers, inorganic and organic nanoparticles. Nanoparticles and surface-modified nanoparticles show good stability and water solubility and can be used efficiently as drug delivery carriers. This paper summarizes the advancement in nanoparticles/surface-modified nanoparticles and patents based on them.

Keywords: Nanoparticles, modified nanoparticles, drug discovery, patents, surface modification, grafting.
