Nanoemulsions - Researchers at Istanbul Technical University Release New Data on Nanoemulsions
2014 FEB 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 in Istanbul, Turkey, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Response surface methodology was used to optimize the conditions for quercetin (QT) nanoemulsion preparations. The parameters to produce stable coarse emulsion formulations, which contain limonene oil, emulsifiers consisting of a Tween 80 and Span 20 mixture (1:1 weight ratio), and a water phase, using high-speed homogenization were identified by using the pseudoternary phase diagram. ...read more
Nanoemulsions - Recent Findings in Nanoemulsions Described by C. Puglia and Colleagues
2014 JAN 27 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Weekly -- Researchers detail new data in Nanoemulsions. According to news reporting out of Catania, Italy, by VerticalNews editors, research stated, "The increased awareness of protection against UV radiation damages has led to a rise in the use of topically applied chemical sunscreen agents and to an increased need of innovative carriers designed to achieve the highest protective effect and reduce the toxicological risk resulting from the percutaneous absorption of these substances. In this paper, nanostructured lipid carriers (NLC) and nanoemulsions (NE) were formulated to optimize the topical application of different and widespread UVA or UVB sun filters (ethyl hexyltriazone (EHT), diethylamino hydroxybenzoyl hexyl benzoate (DHHB), bemotrizinol (Tinosorb S), octylmethoxycinnamate (OMC) and avobenzone (AVO)). ...read more
Nanoemulsions - Study Results from University of Putra Malaysia Update Understanding of Nanoemulsions
2013 DEC 23 (VerticalNews) -- By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Nanotechnology Business Journal -- Investigators publish new report on Nanoemulsions. According to news reporting originating in Selangor, Malaysia, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Despite the pharmacological properties of thymoquinone (TQ), its administration in vivo remains problematic partly due to its poor water solubility, leading to low absorptivity and bioavailability. Hence, the objective of this study is to prepare, characterize, and evaluate the stability of TQ nanoemulsion (TQNE). ...read more
