Calcium phosphate nanoplates and nanorods with controllable pores and enhanced protein loading and tuneable release characteristics are first synthesized without the use of any toxic surfactants by an energy efficient microwave assisted chemical process, hence demonstrating their viability as a tool for controllable drug delivery in biomaterial systems.
