Abstract

Nanotechnology is an area of growing public interest. Employing nanotechnology in the field of drug delivery has led to the advent of nanopharmaceuticals. Nanopharmaceuticals are bound to surmount various obstacles that the field of pharmacy is currently facing by offering various advantages thereby, a promising potential to formulate advanced medicines with fewer adverse effects. Extensive research is in place, thus instigating the development of novel drug delivery systems, such as carbon nanotubes, nanosponges, nano wafers, and nanofibers, to name a few. Since their inception, these nanopharmaceuticals have advanced significantly regarding their preparation strategy and scope of applications. This article aims to review the merits, limitations, and scope of these aforementioned delivery systems.
