AN OVERVIEW ON SOLUBILITY ENHANCEMENT TECHNIQUES FOR POORLY SOLUBLE DRUGS AND SOLID DISPERSION AS AN EMINENT STRATEGIC APPROACH
Solubility is an important parameter to achieve desired concentration of drug in systemic circulation for pharmacological response to be shown. Among all newly discovered chemical entities most of the drugs are lipophillic and fail to reach market due to their poor water solubility. The solubility behavior remains one of the most challenging aspect informational development. Hence various techni...

GC/MS ANALYSIS AND ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF DIETHYL ETHER FRACTION OF METHANOLIC EXTRACT FROM THE STEM BARK OF ANNONA SENEGALENSIS PERS.
The Diethyl ether fraction of the Methanolic extract of Annona senegalensis (Pers) stem bark was prepared in yield of (0.16%). Preparative Thin Layer Chromatography analysis of the fraction resulted in the identification of two spots with antimicrobial activity. Subsequent GC/MS analysis of these spots resulted in the identification of ten components (spot one) and fourteen components (spot two). ...
Transdermal drug delivery is proving to be superior to the conventional oral delivery of drugs owing to its distinct virtues. But it has got its own limitations as well- inability to transport large molecules, inability to overcome the barrier properties of stratum corneum and many more. Using this route of drug delivery along with novel approaches can help to solve these problems. Formulating the...
