In this work, we used a simple method to construct Janus-shaped TiO&mSiO nanoparticles composed of gray-black titanium dioxide (TiO) and mesoporous silica (mSiO) serving as carriers to improve the microwave-controlled release performance. In the composite materials, on one hand, the rod-shaped mSiO could realize high-efficiency drug loading, on the other hand, spherical TiO featuring oxygen vacancy acted as the main microwave absorber. The overall spatial separation between titanium dioxide and silicon dioxide was crucial to enhance microwave conversion efficiency. Read More
