Abstract:


Introduction: Nanoemulsion is an important tool in the nano-technological arena designed for clinical and therapeutic application. Currently among different nanocarriers, nanoemulsions are extensively envisaged as carters efficient in targeting oleophillic pharmacologically active constituents at the site of action. Beauties of nanoemulsion include optical clarity, biocompatibility, non-immunogenic, biodegradable, drug encapsulation, sustained and controlled release, nanometric size, large surface area, ease of preparation and thermodynamic stability. The scientific society has acknowledged nanoemulsions as proficient nanocarriers capable of effectively addressing the low bioavailability and non compliance issues associated with the conventional dosage forms.

Conclusion: This review attempts to shed new light on the current status of nanoemulsion in the therapeutics, and commercial field and optimization of efficiency on the basis of morphology, formulation, characteristics and characterization parameters.

Keywords:

Nanoemulsion, nanotechnology, biodegradable, drug encapsulation, nano-pharmaceuticals, ethosomes.
