Hierarchically ordered lipid structures in the form of water-in-oil or oil-in-water emulsions are found in many consumer products including foods, cosmetics and pharmaceutics. They are commercially very useful for many biotechnological applications.
We can control the final consistency and nanostructure of these formulations. We have range of projects involving the preparation, modulation of properties and finding novel applications of such nano-formulations.
