Multifunctional mesoporous silica nanoparticles are developed in order to deliver anticancer drugs to specific cancer cells in a targeted and controlled manner. Doxorubicin-loaded nanoparticles containing folate target units can be efficiently trapped by folate-receptor-rich HeLa cancer cells through receptor-mediated endocytosis, leading to the release of doxorubicin triggered by acidic endosomal pH and intracellular glutathione for apoptosis.
