|Abstract:||Mesoporous organosilica nanoparticles with a novel bowl-like morphology were synthesized. These nano-bowls possess uniform particle sizes around 180 nm and open cavities around 140 nm, which lead to higher loading capability for plasmid DNA than traditional silica-based nanoparticles. In vitro DNA transfection using these nano-bowls is demonstrated.|
