Abstract

Ethylcellulose based microsponges loaded with honey were synthesized by Quasi-Emulsion solvent method. The honey loaded microsponges were characterised by Particle size distribution Analyser and High Resolution Scanning Electron Microscopy. The percentage drug content and Entrapment Efficiency of the loaded microsponges were determined. The antimicrobial and antioxidant activity of microsponges were evaluated.


Keywords: Microsponge, Honey, antimicrobial, antioxidant.
