Abstract

Microemulsions are one of the best candidates for drug delivery because of their long shelf life, improved drug solubilization with ease of preparation and administration. It has unique properties, including clarity, thermodynamically stable and optically isotropic liquid solutions of oil, water and amphiphile. Microemulsions are isotropic, thermodynamically stable transparent (or translucent) systems of oil, water and surfactant, frequently in combination with a cosurfactant with a droplet size usually in the range of 20–200 nm. Microemulsions have great range of applications and uses such as in pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, cutting oils, biotechnology, food, cosmetics, analytical applications, environmental detoxification etc. The main objective of this review paper is to discuss microemulsions as drug carrier system with other possible applications.
