Abstract: The objectives of the studies presented herein was to investigate the mechanisms of emulsion instability under thermal stress (121 degrees C) by evaluating the effects of a lipophilic drug dissolved in the internal phase of an oil-in-water (o/w) emulsion on growth rate suppression and the apparent microviscosity. Model drugs used were methyl, propyl and heptyl paraben. The o/w emulsions were prepared using medium chain triglycerides as an internal phase in aqueous glycerol solutions emulsified with phospholipi…
