Both polymers are commonly used in the pharmaceutical and medical fields because of their nontoxicity, biodegradability and biocompatibility characteristics. The bio-based microspheres were produced using an emulsion gelation process with a subsequent drying step by supercritical CO 2 . The microspheres were characterized by FTIR and SEM. Furthermore, their BET surface area, particle size distribution, and their aerodynamic properties were determined. The microspheres showed a low density in the range of 0.035 – 0.063 g/cm 3 and a high porosity of 97.6–98.7 %, as well as good in vitro aerodynamic properties with d A values of about 5 μm. The obtained properties of the alginate- hyaluronic acid microspheres suggest that they are potentially suitable as drug carrier for pulmonary delivery.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/11420/2634||ISSN:||0896-8446||Institute:||Thermische Verfahrenstechnik V-8||Type:||(wissenschaftlicher) Artikel|
