About 40% of drugs with market approval are poorly water-soluble and fail to reach market on account of their poor aqueous solubility. Surfactant solubilization is an effective approach to increase the solubility of poorly soluble drugs. One reason that surfactant is useful is that, under suitable conditions, their aqueous solutions are able to dissolve substantial amounts of compounds that have very low solubility in water. Similarly, surfactant can greatly increase the solubility of water and other polar compounds in hydrocarbons and other liquids of low polarity. This phenomenon, which involves incorporation of the solute by aggregates of surfactant molecules, is known as solubilization. It occurs not only for small surfactant aggregates such as (nearly) spherical micelles but also for larger aggregates such as microemulsion drops, vesicles, and cylindrical and plate-like micelles.
