    Author(s): Salunkhe Vijay Rajaram*, Patil Priyanka Ravindra and Magdum Chandrakant Shripal

    The present research aims to microemulsion of anticancer drug specially Imiquimod. Our intention is to design and develop anticancer microemulsion and characterizes the same by applicable and critical parameters. In this research work, Imiquimod is a synthetic anticancer drug which is used to formulate the microemulsion formulation. Imiquimod drug was evaluated by the preliminary tests as color, appearance, nature, melting point, solubility, infrared spectra, determination of λ max, determination of calibration curve, XRD, DSC. The λ max of Imiquimod was found to be at 257 nm. Prepared microemulsion characterized by color, odor, appearance, pH, Viscosity (cp), Staining test, Droplet size (nm), Drug content (%), zeta potential, UV spectroscopy, in vitro drug release study, Thermodynamic stability, surface morphology, NMR study, in vitro..
