Abstract

The evolution of the science and technology of liposomes as a drug carrier has passed through a number of
distinct phases. Because they exhibit peculiar properties due to their structure, chemical composition
amphiphilic nature, physico-chemical characters and colloidal size, which are used in various applications.
These properties point to several applications as the solubilizer for insoluble drugs, dispersants, and sustained
release system, delivery system for the encapsulated substance, stabilizer, protective agents, and micro reactive
being the most obvious ones. Yet interest in liposomes, especially among academic workers, spread rapidly we
attribute this to the remarkable structural versatility of the system, which enables the design of countless
liposomes versions to satisfy particular needs in terms of both technology and optimal function in vivo.

Keywords: Liposomes, Liposomal vesicles, MLV, SUV, OLV, Phospholipid.
