Nanoemulsions - Reports Outline Nanoemulsions Research from University of Massachusetts
2012 DEC 3 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Weekly -- New research on Nanoemulsions is the subject of a report. According to news reporting originating from Amherst, Massachusetts, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "The utilisation of carotenoids as functional ingredients (pigments and nutraceuticals) in many food and beverage products is currently limited because of their poor water-solubility, high melting point, chemical instability, and low bioavailability. This study examined the impact of antioxidants on the chemical degradation of ß-carotene encapsulated within nanoemulsions suitable for oral ingestion. ß-Carotene was incorporated into oil-in-water nanoemulsions stabilized by either a globular protein (ß-lactoglobulin) or a non-ionic surfactant (Tween 20). ...read more
Nanoemulsions - Research from University of Almeria Reveals New Findings on Nanoemulsions
2012 SEP 17 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Weekly -- Investigators discuss new findings in Nanoemulsions. According to news reporting out of Almeria, Spain, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "The coalescence of liquid drops induces a higher level of complexity compared to the classical studies about the aggregation of solid spheres. Yet, it is commonly believed that most findings on solid dispersions are directly applicable to liquid mixtures. ...read more
Nanoemulsions - Researchers from Federal University Detail New Studies and Findings in the Area of Nanoemulsions
2012 APR 9 - (VerticalNews.com) -- Current study results from the report, "Optimization of headspace solid-phase microextraction for analysis of ß-caryophyllene in a nanoemulsion dosage form prepared with copaiba (Copaifera multijuga Hayne) oil," have been published. "Recent studies have shown the anti-inflammatory activity of Copaiba oils may be addressed to the high content of ß-caryophyllene, the most common sesquiterpene detected, especially in the Copaifera multijuga Hayne species. In the present study, nanoemulsions were proposed as a delivery system for copaiba oil in view to treat locally inflamed skin," researchers in Porto Alegre, Brazil report ...read more
