Abstract

Polymers have been largely explored for the preparation of nanoparticles due to ease of preparation and modification, large gene/drug loading capacity, and biocompatibility. Various methods have been adapted for the preparation and characterization of chitosan nanoparticles.Focus on the different methods of preparation and characterization of chitosan nanoparticles.Detailed literature survey has been done for the studies reporting various methods of preparation and characterization of chitosan nanoparticles.Published database suggests of several methods which have been developed for the preparation and characterization of chitosan nanoparticles as per the application.
