Abstract: Nanoparticles play an important role in the field of nanotechnology; and it’s a rapidly developing field. Nanomaterials having their unique size-dependent properties make these materials superior and indispensable in many areas. Nanoparticles have found widespread use in drug delivery, counting more than a dozen FDA-approved variants with indications ranging from cancer to infection. One such material is graphene oxide (GO), and it has non-covalent interactions with aromatic drug molecules. Graphene oxide plays an important role in drug and gene delivery. This nanomaterial is biocompatible to cells and plasmids. Layered double hydroxide (LDH) having a variety of available inorganic matrix can be used for safe drug delivery systems.
