NANOEMULSION: A NOVEL CONCEPT FOR DRUG DELIVERY SYSTEM AND ITS CURRENT APPLICATIONS
Rakhi Choudhary* and Fatima
Nanoemulsions have small droplet size of 100 nm due to which it has large surface area per unit volume. The most important advantages of nanoemulsion are that it increases the solubility of the poor soluble drugs. In case of nanoemulsion problems like creaming, sedimentation and flocculation are removed. The destabilization in nanoemulsions generally occurs due to coalescence. The focus of this review article is on nanoemulsion and its current applications in various pharmaceutical fields.
Keywords: Nanoemulsion, sedimentation, flocculation, destabilization.
