Abstract

The term aerosol refers to the fine dispersion in a gas, suitable to be breathed in, (dispersing phase) of liquid or solid particles (dispersed phase). It can be considered as the means of transport of a drug to the airways in the form of small liquid or solid particles (with a diameter from 2 to 100 μ).
