Introduction: Nanoemulsion is an important tool in the nano-technological arena
designed for clinical and therapeutic application. Currently among different nanocarriers,
nanoemulsions are extensively envisaged as carters efficient in targeting oleophillic pharmacologically
active constituents at the site of action. Beauties of nanoemulsion include optical clarity,
biocompatibility, non-immunogenic, biodegradable, drug encapsulation, sustained and
controlled release, nanometric size, large surface area, ease of preparation and thermodynamic
stability. The scientific society has acknowledged nanoemulsions as proficient nanocarriers
capable of effectively addressing the low bioavailability and non compliance issues associated
with the conventional dosage forms.
Conclusion: This review attempts to shed new light on the current status of nanoemulsion
in the therapeutics, and commercial field and optimization of efficiency on the basis
of morphology, formulation, characteristics and characterization parameters.
