The aim of present study was to choose the better technique to achieve reproducibility and consistency with good entrapment efficiency for the preparation of nanoparticles by employing Analytic Hierarchy Process as tool. A number of techniques are available for the preparation of nanoparticles. AHP technique was applied to make choice amongst alternative nanoencapsulation techniques (Solvent Evaporation Technique (SET)/Nano Precipitation Method (NPM)/Solvent Diffusion Method (SDM)/Salting Out Method (SOM)) and thereby opt the best technique. The solution of the problem involves finding the composite score that reflects the relative priorities of all the alternatives at the lowest level of the hierarchy. The composite score is used for the final ranking of the alternatives. The composite score favored the selection of SET (score=0.469) over NPM (score=0.365), SDM (score=0.174), SOM (score=0.076) for Nano encapsulation technique.
