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. Since their discovery, they have attained increasing significance both in basic research and in industry. Due to their distinct advantages such as enhanced drug solubility, thermodynamic stability, facile preparation, and low cost, uses and applications of microemulsions… 
MICROEMULSION AND ITS APPLICATIONS NOVEL APPROACH TOWARDS THE DRUG DELIVERY
A microemulsion is a system of water, oil and an amphiphiles which is a single optically isotropic and thermodynamically stable liquid solution. Microemulsions can be considered as small-scale
Microemulsion-loaded hydrogel formulation of butenafine hydrochloride for improved topical delivery
TLDR
The results provide a basis for the successful delivery of BTF from microemulsion-loaded hydrogel formulation, which resulted in improved penetration of drug and antifungal activity in comparison with commercial formulation of B TF.
Microemulsions and microheterogeneous microemulsion-based polymeric matrices for transdermal delivery of lipophilic drug (Felodipine)
Transdermal administration of drugs is more effective than traditional methods: metabolism of a drug in the gastrointestinal tract and liver is excluded, and its constant concentration in blood is
Pharmaceutical Microemulsion: Formulation, Characterization and Drug deliveries across skin
TLDR
Effect of formulation components of microemulsion, trends in selection of new exicipients constituting oil phase, surfactant and cosurfactant has been highlighted herein and future orientations.
Microemulsions as Solubilizers and Penetration Enhancers for Minoxidil Release from Gels
TLDR
Determination of the residual drug amount in the skin after 6 h of the ex vivo permeation was demonstrated as the most valuable method to evaluate the effectiveness of the ME’s application and indicates that the most optimal MXD permeation enhancers in alginate gel were the natural surfactants containing MEs.
MICROEMULSIONS: PLATFORM FOR IMPROVEMENT OF SOLUBILITY AND DISSOLUTION OF POORLY SOLUBLE DRUGS
TLDR
There is a real and continuing need for the development of effective drug delivery systems for poorly water-soluble drugs to enhance their absorption and bioavailability and pharmaceutical microemulsions as they have emerged as potential solubility enhancing technologies.
