Pharmacutical Nanotechnolog, Design of cosmetic formulation
Nanotechnology is a collective term for a range of technologies, techniques, and processes that involve the treatment of matter at the smallest scale (from 1 to 100 nanometres). It is engineering at the molecular level. Because nanotechnology is classified by the size of the materials being developed and used, the products have little in common with each other — for example, fuel cells, fabrics, or drug delivery systems. What brings them together is the convergence of all basic sciences (biology, physics, and chemistry) at the molecular level.
The main focus of this special issue will be on new and existing nanoformulations for delivery. Today, most harmful side effects of treatments such as chemotherapy are a result of drug delivery methods that do not pinpoint their intended target cells accurately. Reviews that summarize the results of variety of novel formulations are like polymeric nanoparticles, nanocapsules, liposomes, phytosomes, nanoemulsions, microsphere, hydrogels, and so forth. We particularly take interest in that novel drug development and delivery.
