Potential

• (SAS) process can be used to tailor drug’s properties as application in

controlled drug delivery

• The process is nano-size particle and in total powder form

• This process operates under a relatively low supercritical pressure and

temperature thus making it economically attractive and safe

• Green process, environmental friendly

• Elimination of usage of toxic solvent and solvent-free final product

• Low operation temperature thus avoiding drug’s thermal degradation

• Encapsulated drug immediately obtained at end of procedure without

additional downstream process

• Pharmaceutical Industry
