Production of Polymer Microparticles for Pharmaceutical Applications by Supercritical Fluid Extraction of Emulsions


The biodegradable polymer PLGA is an interesting excipient for pharmaceutical purposes such as controlled drug release and drug targeting. Drug-entrapping micro-particles with a narrow particle size distribution are desired for such applications. In this work, we investigate a novel process for the production of such particles, namely supercritical fluid… (More)
