A novel process for production of nanoparticles using subcritical carbon dioxide

Prof. M. Mukhopadhyay and her student of Department of Chemical Engineering have developed a new drug delivery system with a prolonged bio-activity and enhanced drug dissolution rate. The efficiency of any drug depends upon their size, morphology and size distribution, as their solubility in the body fluid depends upon these factors. Lower the particle size of these solid drugs, higher would be their dissolution rates and their bioavailability in the body fluids.
