Abstract:


Extensive attempts have been made to decipher the problem associated with the solubility of drugs for maximizing bioavailability at targeted sites. More than 40% NCEs (new chemical entities) emerged through modern technology like high throughput screening, combinatorial chemistry, computer-aided drug design etc. and the drug discovery process has been dramatically accelerated. Fabrication of materials into the nanodimension changes their physical properties which depicts a vivid shift from lab scale optimization studies to scale up focused studies. In addition, this comprehensive review covers physics behind the drug nanocrystals and their properties, different technologies and methods of drug nanocrystal preparation and its stabilization along with theapplication of nanocrystals. This review also covers factors affecting nanoformulations, post-production processing and future prospects.

Keywords:

Nanocrystal, solubility, nanosuspension, bottom up, top down, stabilizers.
