Polymeric nanoparticles are colloidal solid particles with a size range of 10 to 1000nm and they can be spherical, branched or shell structures made from biodegradable and non-biodegradable polymers, in which drugs are incorporated into nanoparticles by dissolution, entrapment, adsorption and attachment or by encapsulation. The choice of polymer and the ability to modify drug release from polymeric nanoparticles have made them ideal candidates for cancer therapy, delivery of vaccines, contraceptives and delivery of targeted antibiotics. In this review some of the polymers used in synthesis of polymeric nanoparticles and their applications were discussed.
