Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Norflixacin was microencapsulated with Gelatin (G) and Cellulose Acetate (CA) by simple coacertation and complex emulsion techniques. The microcapsules were found to be spherical and mono nuclear type. The cellulose acetate microcapsules were large sizes and discrete where as gelatin microcapsules were small and aggregated. Also, drug release from the cellulose acetate microcapsules was found to be slower than that obtained from gelatin microcapsules.
