The study of drug delivery systems is extremely challenging. The main challenge stems from the broad range of physical properties exhibited by the many objects used in drug delivery, including polymers, lipids, surfactants, gels and emulsions. For rigorous investigation of such complicated materials, sophisticated methods are required. These include a combination of NMR, dynamic light scattering, SAXS, viscometry, microscopy and analytical ultracentrifugation. Each method has its own merits and disadvantages; e.g., detection sensitivity, temporal resolution, spatial resolution, signal-to-noise ratio and quantitative accuracy. This special issue will focus on soft matter materials and their application in drug delivery.
