Chitosomes are structures formed by electrostatic complexation of chitosan with phospholipid bilayers of liposome that aim to improve efficiency of liposomes in terms of stability and mucoadhesive properties as a delivery system of bioactive compounds. This study focused on analysis of operational parameters, particles characterization and study of chitosan-phospholipids interactions in order to obtain positively charged particle with nanometric size and low polidispersity index chitosomes.
