Research and Markets has declared the inclusion of the book titled "Nanotechnologies for Solubilization and Delivery in Foods, Cosmetics and Pharmaceuticals" to its offering.
This book deals with the fundamentals of micellization and surfactant chemistry. This book provides a range of nanotechnologies to control polymeric and colloidal formations to enable targeted delivery and solubilization of pharmaceuticals and food nutrients.
The book shows how vehicles for transporting bioactive substances using a range of channels such as transdermal, oral, mucosal, and buccal, can be created by treating proteins, colloidal systems,liquid crystalline phases, peptides, dendrimers, and organogels at the nanolevel. The book emphasizes on modifying mesophases in liquid crystal systems and micellar, which are demonstrated to be chemical nanoreactors and useful templates for distinctly formed nanocarriers.
The volume links modifications at the nano and micro level of biopolymeric and emulsion-based systems and also structuring of new nanoparticles, to key characteristics of bioavailability, absorption and therapeutic efficiency for numerous food nutrients, existing and experimental drugs, and antimicrobials. Chemical strategies to improve drug and nutrient carrier efficiency are also given importance. The data listed in this book is useful for developing micro and nanolevel delivery systems with enhanced targeting, more effectively managed release, and better in vivo penetration into cellular and dermal structures.
