Nanoemulsion or Microemulsion? - Understanding the Differences and Similarities

Shivam Thakore1, Rashmin Patel1 & Mrunali Patel2

Introduction: Since last four decades, the term microemulsion is being used largely due to their better formulation applications, stability and optical transparency. Oils, surfactants, co-surfactants and aqueous phase generally formulate microemulsions. On further development and entry of nanotechnology in the pharmaceutical market, the term nanoemulsion is coined. Nanoemulsion, generally requires similar components with high amount of external energy to generate nano sized droplets. Microemulsion and nanoemulsion have similar methods of preparation, characterization techniques and good stability (in terms of thermodynamic or kinetic)1-3.
