Abstract

Abstract The past decade has been witness to a new impetus in surfactant self-assembly objects as agents for drug delivery that are an alternative to micellar, lamellar (liposome, niosome and transfersome) or microemulsion-based vehicles. The review focus herein is on the application of hexagonal, cubic, ‘intermediate’ (viz. rhombohedral, tetragonal and monoclinic) and L 3 (‘sponge’) mesophases.
