Article title

Mesoporous alumina as a biomaterial for
biomedical applications


Title variants

Languages of publication



Porous anodic alumina (PAA) is a biomaterial
based on a cost-effective electrochemical anodization of
pure aluminum with unique geometrical properties, i.e.,
self-ordering hexagonal pore distribution, tunable pore diameters
and interpore distances, and uniformity of the
pores in the vertical direction (nanochannels). These remarkable
properties have found important applications
in several fields such as energy storage, optics, photonics,
magnetism, catalysis and, in particular, in the
biomedicine field. In this work, we review the current
state of research and key issues on cell culture and implants,
drug delivery systems with complex release profiles
and specific action, and high efficiency and sensitivity
biosensors with different biosensing mechanisms, all
of them based on PAA. The biocompatibility, morphology
of the surface, nanoestructural engineering in-depth, surface
functionalization and coatings are discussed and analyzed
in detail.
