This research work is based on the applications of stable monodispersed silica coated goldshell-core nanoparticles gel for topical drug delivery as anti-aging agents. The research will emphasise on the designing and developing silica coated gold nanoparticles in gel formulation, optimise, characterize and expose them for drug targeting applications as an anti-aging agents. Looking on to the efficacy and safety profiles of functionalised silica nanoparticles we have planned to design and develop silica coated gold nanoparticles using green-clean chemistry techniques, characterize using advanced spectroscopic and microscopic techniques. Optimize them for making highly biocompatible formulation as in clear gel form. The biologically designed and developed silica-gold shell-core nanoparticles will be characterized by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy, FT-IR and SEM, TEM and AFM techniques. The formulated gel will be evaluated for various parameters like their size, shape, viscosity, pH, sterility, drug content uniformity and in vitro drug release studies. The results are highly significant and offer promising results for future cosmoceutical applications.
