Hydrogen-bonded Organic Frameworks (HOFs) have emerged as promising materials for drug delivery applications due to their unique properties. HOFs are porous and can encapsulate drugs within their framework, providing protection from degradation and enhancing drug stability. The hydrogen bonding interactions in HOFs can be harnessed to control drug release, allowing for sustained and controlled delivery over time.
One of the key advantages of HOFs in drug delivery is their tunability. The chemical composition of HOFs can be tailored, enabling the incorporation of functional groups that facilitate targeted drug delivery to specific sites in the body. This enhances the therapeutic efficacy of drugs while minimizing off-target effects and reducing side effects.
Furthermore, HOFs are biocompatible and can be engineered to improve their biodegradability, ensuring safe and efficient drug delivery. Continued research in this field holds great promise for the development of novel drug delivery systems with enhanced efficacy and reduced toxicity.
