Characterizing Nanoemulsions Prepared by High Pressure Homogenization Under Various Emulsifying Conditions

Today, nanotechnology is recognized as enabling the manipulation of matter at the atomic and molecular level to create new materials with functional characteristics that are markedly different from conventional materials.1 Nanoemulsions, for example, can be used to control the rate at which assets are delivered to the skin. This control is achieved by incorporating materials within the nanoemulsion according to their compatibility with it, which obviously relies on their physical-chemical structure. Indeed, a great deal of attention has been dedicated recently to colloidal systems for the delivery of active ingredients because they significantly reduce the side effects of drugs and increase their bioavailability.2
