Characterization of Pickering emulsions



The use of pickering emulsions is of high interest for applications in a large
range of fields like drug delivery, vesicle and responsive materials, porous
materials, catalytic facilitation, safer formulation in cosmetic, due to their strong
stability compared to systems stabilized by surfactants. They also provide many
beneficial properties: less irritability, environmentally friendly behaviour, carbon
foot print decrease.
This note will present the results of a study of such emulsions on an example of
pickering emulsions used in pharmaceutical field with an antifungal medication
stabilized with biocompatible component. In pharmaceutical field, surfactant
free emulsions are of great interest to avoid skin irritation, hemolysis and protein
