Special Issue "Surfactant-Based Drug Delivery"
A special issue of Pharmaceutics (ISSN 1999-4923).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2019.
Interests: surfactants; drug delivery; nanoparticles; cancer; formulation
The use of surfactants in the field of pharmaceutical sciences is ubiquitous to nearly every type of dosage form. Surfactants function in the same roles as in other industries, ranging from solubilizers to lubricants, wetting agents, emulsifiers/suspending agents, disinfectants, and so on; however, the importance of surfactants in the design of novel drug delivery systems makes this class of excipients even more important.
We invite you to submit an article in the area of “Surfactant-Based Drug Delivery”, in which the focus of the article is defined by the surfactant(s) used in the drug delivery system. Review articles, communications, and original research manuscripts involving the use of traditional surfactants, novel surfactants, polymeric surfactants, biosurfactants, etc., will all be considered for this Special Issue.
