Each mixture was then tested for entrapment efficiency, particle size, and polydispersity index. The test results were analyzed with 2<sup>3</sup> factorial design using Design-Expert software in order to determine the optimum formula.</p> <p><strong>Results: </strong>The optimization study showed that all of the factors influenced the responses significantly (p&lt;0.05) based on the analysis of variance (ANOVA) of the suggested models. The R2value and the adequate precision value of the three models were more than 0.7 and 4, respectively. The difference between Adjusted R-Squared and Predicted R-Squared value were less than 0.200. The optimum condition of TM nanoparticle was suggested at the desirability value of 0.839 with the concentration of PC, CC, and CS of 0,4% (w/v), 0,2% (w/v), and 0,01% (w/v), respectively. The entrapment efficiency, particle size, and polydispersity index of the optimum condition were 24.791±2.84%, 274.867±14.45 nm, and 0.634±0.066, respectively.</p> <p><strong>Conclusion: </strong>The 2<sup>3</sup>factorial design has been proved as the suitable method to determine the optimum condition that yields the good results of the entrapment efficiency, particle size, and polydispersity index of the TM-loaded nanoparticle prepared by ionic gelation method.</p>}, number={5}, journal={International Journal of Applied Pharmaceutics}, author={MUHTADI, WILDAN KHAIRI and NOVITASARI, LARAS and MARTIEN, RONNY and DANARTI, RETNO}, year={2019}, month={Sep.}, pages={66–70} }
