Abstract

Bionanotechnology is an ever-expanding field as innovations in nanotechnology continue to be developed based on biological systems or to be applied to address unmet needs in biology, biomedicine, etc., including various sensor and drug delivery solutions. Amidst the wide range of bionanomaterials that have been developed, stimuli responsive bionanomaterials are of particular interest and are thus emphasized within this review. Here, we have highlighted the most recent advances for stimuli responsive bionanomaterials with focus on those possessing responses based on activation, expansion/contraction and self-assembly/disassembly. The aim of this review is to bring attention to some of the most current bionanotechnology research and the interesting applications within this field.
