Nano suspensions: A Potential Approach for Drug Delivery System

Sreeremya S


Nanotechnology is likely to revolutionize our lives, in general, and health milieu, in particular. It is emerging discipline that comprises an aggrandizing sophisticated ability to manipulate matter at the nanoscale (0.1–1000 nm) resulting in new material, product and device that demonstrate new and unusual behavior. This paper garners information regarding the intriguing feature of nanosuspension and its properties. Nanosuspension have many advantageous since it has an efficient solubility when compared to other usual drug dosage forms.

Keywords: nanotechnology, nanosuspension, properties, solubility
