Optimization in the preparation of chitosan nanoparticles loaded with 3-indoleacetic acid by the ultrasonication method that improve their performance and stability

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

From the results of the 2018 research, and using the ultrasound and lyophilization equipment recently acquired by the University of Lima, a new technique will be applied for the generation of stability, size of smaller nanoparticles and a distribution of the size of the finest nanoparticles. These factors are important in the stability and controlled release process of biologically active molecules, such as plant hormone, 3-indoleacetic acid. The project is expected to contribute to the increase in agricultural production and the decrease in the use of fertilizers and hormones, whose accumulation of waste leads to environmental pollution and public health problems.
