ABSTRACT
We have reported a novel procedure to prepare 3,5-dihydroxy-4-isopropylstilbene (DHPS) nanoemulsion, using a low-energy emulsification method. Based on the phase diagram, the optimum prescription of nanoemulsion preparation was screened. With polyoxyethylenated castor oil (EL-40) as the surfactant, ethanol as the co-surfactant, and isopropyl myristate (IPM) as the oil phase, the DHPS nanoemulsion was obtained with a transparent appearance, little viscosity, and spherically uniform distribution verified by transmission electron microscopy and laser scattering analyzer. The nanoemulsion was also determined by FT-Raman spectroscopy. The DHPS nanoemulsion demonstrated good stability and stable physical and chemical properties. The nanoemulsion dramatically improved the transdermal release of DHPS (from 8.02 μg · cm(-2) to 273.15 μg · cm(-2)) and could become a favorable new dosage form for DHPS.

f6-ijn-6-649: The mean size of DHPS nanoemulsion droplets.

Mentions: TEM can directly produce images of targets with high resolution. The morphology and structure of the optimal nanoemulsion formulation were observed using TEM. As seen in Figure 5, the nanoemulsion droplet is round and has a smooth margin with a mean size of about 60.88 nm (Figure 6). The droplet size has a direct influence on the behavior of the nanoemulsion, especially the bioavailability of the delivered drug. In general, the smaller the droplet size in the nanoemulsion, the more favorable the expected result for in vivo application.
