targeting. Delivery methods using nanoparticle are highlighted including both degradable and non-degradable polymers. The preparation techniques include emulsion polymerization, micelle polymerization, desolvation of macromolecule, and
emulsion-solvent evaporation methods.The particle size of the polymeric nanoparticle is in the nanometer range (10-1000 nm) and is dependent on the method of preparation employed.
