Abstract:

The chitosan nanoparticles because of their biodegradability, biocompatibility, better stability, low toxicity, simple and mild preparation methods, offer a valuable tool to novel drug delivery systems in the present. The methods such as micro emulsion method, emulsification solvent diffusion method are also in use. The present review describes properties, different methods of preparation and applications of chitosan nanoparticles.
