The global nanotechnology drug delivery systems market segmentation is based on technology types (nanocrystals, nanoparticles, dendrimers, gold nanoparticles, fullerenes, liposomes, micelles, nanotubes), and its applications (anti-infective, anti-inflammatory, immunology, cardiovascular, physiology, neurology, oncology).
Micelles offered a much more efficient delivery mechanism for this agent than standard methods, such as adding the polysaccharide adhesive chitosan to help eyedrops remain longer in the eye.
Sun, Zhu, and Zhou (2008) studied the use of reverse micelles containing AOT (bis-2-ethyl-hexil sodium sulfosuccinate) as surfactants and isooctane as an organic solvent, for the protein extraction from nonfat wheat germ, using the surface response method for the optimization of extraction.
