Lipid dosage forms are attractive delivery systems for hydrophobic drug molecules. Emulsion is one of the popular system since many decades. Pharmaceutical applications of emulsions widened especially after micro and nano-emulsion emergence. This paper is an attempt to summarise comparative aspects like definition, theories, types, methods of preparations, advantages, disadvantages and methods of analysis of emulsion, micro-emulsion and nano-emulsion.
