In the last years, inorganic nanostructures as carbon nanotubes, graphene, hexagonal boron nitride, and metallic nanoparticles have been applied in several biomedical and nanotechnology fields. These different types of nanomaterials also are awakened as new perspectives in prophylactic, diagnostic and therapeutic areas. However, the uses depends strongly on their chemical and physical surfaces that display an important role in their biocompatibility in different biological systems. A brief
