Electroactive polymers (EAPs) reply to electric stimulation with huge deformations. they're dynamic actuators that have attracted cognizance from an interdisciplinary viewers of engineers and scientists. An permitting EAP know-how is rising which makes an attempt to mimic the houses of usual muscle and which, hence, can practice a special functionality in various biologically-inspired robotics purposes.
Highlighting contemporary advancements in addition to destiny demanding situations, this sequence of volumes covers such themes as emulsions, nano-emulsions, nano-dispersions and novel strategies for his or her research. It additionally considers the basic strategy in parts similar to managed liberate, drug supply and diverse purposes of nanotechnology.

The survival rate of mice that received 50 mg/kg paclitaxel in HGC nanoparticles increased substantially compared to 20 mg/kg PTX in Cremophor EL–ethanol solutions . 2 Fatty Acid Derivatives of Chitosan Different fatty acids were used to generate amphiphilic chitosan derivatives: linoleic acid [66, 67], stearic acid [68, 70], and oleic acid  (Fig. 4). The stability of the micellar structure can be controlled by adjusting the balance between hydrophobic acyl groups and hydrophilic chitosan in an N-acyl chitosan.
The grafting of polymer chain onto chitosan is not limited to PCL. The grafting of PEG chains onto chitosan is widely described in the literature [87–91]. Recently, Casettari et al. grafted carboxylic acid-terminated PEG chains onto the primary amines of chitosan and compared the toxicity of the resulting grafted copolymer to chitosan . However, the grafting of hydrophilic PEG chains was not enough to confer amphiphilic properties but can be coupled with the grafting of PCL chains. So, a heterografted chitosan bearing PCL and PEG chains was synthesized by Liu et al.
