This chapter introduces nanocomposites of silica, titania, calcium phosphates, biologically active glasses, and their polymer-modified derivatives with meso- and macro-porous, nanotubular, or hollow nanoparticle-type structures that have been prepared via the sol-gel routes. Their applications for delivering drugs and DNAs, tissue-materials interactions, and tissue regeneration are briefly described.
