Glyceryl tripalmitate (tripalmitin) (Sigma-Aldrich, Milan, Italy) was used as a standard for lipid extraction (Holland, Gabbott 1971).
synthetized chitosan-coated NLCs made of natural lipids (glyceryl tridecanoate and glyceryl tripalmitate) and two surfactants (soy lecithin and Kolliphor[R] HS15) aiming to prevent and reverse atherosclerotic lesion development through decreasing macrophage cholesterol content.
n-hexane and methanol were purchased from LAB-SCAN Analytical sciences (Dublin, Ireland), sodium and potassium hydroxides, sodium thiosulphate and anhydrous magnesium sulphate were procured from Merck (Darmstadt, Germany) while glyceryl tripalmitate, glyceryl tristearate, glyceryl trioleate and glyceryl trilaurate (all E 99%) were purchased from Fluka (Steinheim, Germany).
Lipids like glyceryl tripalmitate (tripalmitin), glyceryl monostearate, glyceryl tristearate, and surfactants--poloxamers (Pluronic F68 and Pluronic F127)-were purchased from Sigma Aldrich.
The solubility of the drug was determined in six different lipids--glyceryl monostearate, glyceryl behenate (Compritol 888 ATO), glyceryl tripalmitate (tripalmitin), glyceryl palmitostearate, glyceryl distearate, and cetyl palmitate.
Glyceryl tripalmitate (tripalmitin) showed maximum drug solubilizing capacity of 120 [+ or -] 10 mg drug/gram of lipid while glyceryl palmitostearate and cetyl palmitate showed the next highest solubilizing capacity of 70 [+ or -] 10 mg drug/gram of lipid.
In turn, in tripalmitate fed rats, no significant change of activity of this parameter was observed compared to control diet [28].
