|Abstract||The present study deals with the encapsulation of vegetable organogels in alginate microparticles (MPs). Mango butter (MB) and cocoa butter (CB) are natural organogels which are being used in the preparation of pharmaceutical formulations. In addition to these, mustard oil (MO) was used as the control. The thermal stability of MB and CB can be enhanced by encapsulating them and can be used in oral drug delivery formulations. Double emulsification method was followed for the preparation of MPs. By this method, spherical MPs were synthesized and the sphericity was confirmed by doing light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. The size range of MPs was 107 ± 53 μm, 79 ± 43 μm and 112 ± 78 μm for MPs encapsulating MO, MB and CB, respectively. The melting endotherms of MPs with MB and CB were in exact match with the melting points of MB and CB. This confirmed the existence of MB and CB within the MPs. Encapsulation MB and CB has caused a significant change in the amorphousity of the MPs, which subsequently affected their drug release pattern. The drug release kinetics suggested that the release pattern followed the non-Fickian kinetics. The MPs were found to be hemocompatible in nature and have shown good mucoadhesive and swelling properties. Based on the preliminary results, it was suggested that the vegetable organogels can be encapsulated in alginate microparticles and used as drug delivery vehicles.|

Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT) has initiated the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project to develop a framework of virtual repository of learning resources with a single-window search facility. Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find out the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDL India is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for leading Indian languages. It is being arranged to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular form of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is being developed to help students to prepare for entrance and competitive examination, to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. The pilot project is devising a framework that is being scaled up with respect to content volume and diversity to serve all levels and disciplines of learners. It is being developed at Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDL India is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with respective organization from where the contents are sourced and NDL India has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDL India portal up and running smoothly. However, NDL India takes no responsibility for, and will not be liable for, the portal being unavailable due to technical issues or otherwise.
Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDL India) pilot project.
