In this study, amine-functionalized hollow mesoporous silica nanoparticles with an average diameter of ∼100 nm and shell thickness of ∼20 nm were prepared by an one-step process. This new nanoparticulate system exhibited excellent killing efficiency against mycobacterial (M. smegmatis strain mc2 651) and cancer cells (A549).
