Preparation of liposomes and Encapsulation of Bioactives Using Supercritical Carbon Dioxide

Lisha Zhao
Liposomes are versatile vesicles of a phospholipid bilayer, which offer great protection for active compounds. Encapsulated compounds can be protected from unfavorable external conditions so that their chemical stability and bioavailability can be greatly enhanced. The supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO 2 ) technique has drawn great attention because of its unique advantages over the traditional preparation methods. To yield liposomes with improved characteristics, an improved SC-CO 2 method,
