This review work focuses mainly on the formulation, characterization, physicochemical properties and parameters of stability of emulsions stabilized by solid particles (Pickering emulsions). This concept of emulsions stabilized by particles strong knows a renewed interest in our days saw the benefits they present: good stability, protection of the environment, safety of users, types of particles etc. The adsorption of the solid particles at the oil-water interface is almost irreversible and strong, leading to the formation of a dense film, creating a barrier around the droplets and thus making the droplets very resistant to coalescence. Recently, the possibilities of application of emulsions stabilized by particles are considered in the pharmaceutical industry. This type of formulation may be a potential system of encapsulation of the active ingredients, allowing controlled and targeted release of the active ingredient from the internal phase.
