Application of pharmaceutical nanotechnology (nanomedicines) for plant actives and extracts, therefore, gain a tremendous growth and interest among the scientists. This emerging hertal revolution had headed towards the development of another approach for the delivery of poorly soluble herbal bioactive and plant extracts for enhancing their bioavailability and efficacy In the same context, a majority of pharmaceutical nanotechnologies and targeting strategies including phytosomes, nanoparticles, hydrogels, microspheres, transferosomes and ethosomes, self-nano emulsifying drug delivery systems (SNEDDS), self micro emulsifying drug delivery systems (SMEDDS) have been applied for the delivery of bioactive and plant extracts and were identified and explored. These pharmaceutical nanotechnologies are proven to be the most efficient and reliable delivery systems as these enhances the solubility, stahility: pharmacological activity; physical und chemical degradation and provides protection from unicity. Considering these aspects, the present review highlights the present scenario related with the expansion of novel herbal formulations utilizing the nanotechnologies and compilation of their delivery types and mechanism methodology, koaded drug sie, entrapment efficiency of drug: biological activity and application of these novel formulations. These tremendous research works worldwide, even within such a minor time frame highlights necessity and applications of these emerging technologies for the exploitation of herbal bioactives. In addition, this review article will surely help the emerging scientist to update their conventional knowledge with the latest applied work in the concern area, glohally.
