Recent expansion of innovative micro- and nanosized drug carriers has been driven by utilization of materials with improved functional properties, along with employment of innovative preparation techniques. Various materials of both natural and synthetic origin, with diverse physicochemical properties, ranging from polymers to structured porous inorganic materials have been investigated as starting materials for preparation of these carriers.This chapter focuses on characteristics, methods of preparation/functionalization of micro- and nanosized carriers consisting of these two distinct groups of materials. In addition, their potential application in up-to-date drug delivery is discussed.
