A novel process for drug encapsulation using a liquid to vapour phase change material

Abstract:

Perfluorated hydrocarbons are widely used in the preparation of multifunctional capsules for medical and pharmaceutical applications. Their very low miscibility with organic solvents, however, represents a significant challenge for preparing stabilised droplets without using surfactants or other additives which have a deleterious effect upon capsule uniformity. The aims of this investigation were: firstly, to determine whether perfluorohexane (PFH) could be successfully encapsulated in a poly...
