Published: 9 Dec 2016

Drug delivery coatings are gaining prominence with rising need for increasing the efficacy of drug formulations and need for sustained and targeted drug delivery. Various materials such as bio-based polymers, inorganic materials are being used to develop durable enteric and other coating formulations to improve bioavailability without compromising the quality of the drugs. This issue of the Advanced Coatings and Surface Technology TOE profiles latest developments in coatings for drug delivery applications. The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries. This encompasses protective and functional coatings such as antimicrobial coatings, food coatings, energy-saving coatings, smart glazing, hydrophilic, hydrophobic and super hydrophobic coatings, corrosion protection coatings, barrier coatings and paints. The Chemicals and Advanced Materials cluster tracks research & innovation trends and developments across specialty chemicals, plastics, polymers, chemicals, bio-chemicals, metals, coatings, thin films, surface treatments, composites, alloys, oil and gas, fuel additives, fibers and several other related technologies and its impact and application across industries. Keywords: Enteric coating, bioavailability, lipid-microbubbles, polymer-free coating, drug delivery
