Bicontinuous delivery systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Success for the food products of the future will depend on their capacity to deliver valuable nutritional/bioactives cargo. Thus, new technologies are needed to develop safe and effective carriers for delivery of such compounds to human, animal, and plant cells, and nanostructuring in this context has good potential. This chapter describes the structure and preparation of bicontinuous systems in this respect, and highlights their application as delivery vehicles, with emphasis placed on self-assembled nanostructures comprising distinctive internal compartmentalization. A cubic-phase liquid crystalline gel material is a temperature stable, optically isotropic, viscous gel with a high surface area. The cubic phase is important to cellular processes, including membrane fusion and protein function. The most popular application of cubic phase is as a delivery vehicle for materials that are solubilized in the cubic gel but diffuse out in a controlled-release manner.
