Abstract

Objectives: This study aimed to prepare chitosan-flurbiprofen micro-nano spheres as environmentally friendly for drug releasing by spray-drying method without any cross-linking agent. It was also aimed to reveal the favorable binding geometries of chitosan and flurbiprofen using molecular modeling.
