HYPOTHESIS Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) produced by conventional microemulsion techniques using thermal heat have specific limitations (e.g. high polydispersity, instability and low encapsulation). Replacing thermal heat with microwave heat may produce SLNs which overcome some of these limitations. EXPERIMENTS Stearic acid-based SLNs prepared with Tween® 20 as the emulsifier were chosen as the optimum formulation to encapsulate and potentially deliver the antibacterial drug tetracycline… CONTINUE READING
