Aim of our present study was to formulate the Gelatin Microspheres Loaded with Lisinopril Dihydrate by using Co-acervation phase separation technique for control prolonged release of drug. Micro-particulate drug delivery of Lisinopril Dihydrate was prepared by using a blend of gelatin-carbopol 934P NF and Gelatin-Sodium alginate as release retardant.Lisinopril Dihydrate Microspheres were formulated by using different drug, gelatin-carbopol and gelatin-sodiumalginate in 6 batches was F1, F2, F3, F4, F5 & F6. All the formulations were investigated for various evaluation parameters like particle size, Bulk density, flow behavior, Entrapment efficiency, percentage yield and in vitro drug release etc. All the formulations showed good flow behavior. SEM study revealed that the spheres were almost spherical in shape with smooth surface. In-vitro drug release study showed that by increasing the polymer concentration the drug release of all the formulations were gradually decreased and the optimized formulation (F6) was able to sustain the drug release for 24 hours. So, it was concluded that gelatin microspheres loaded with Lisinopril Dihydrate can be prepared by Coacervation phase seperation technique and used for sustaining the drug release for prolonged period of time.

The fusidic acid(ent-16α-acetoxy-3β-dihydroxy-4β,8β,14α-trimethyl-18-nor-5β,10α-cholesta-(17z)-17(20),24-dien-21-oic acid) together with known compounds β-sitosterol, 2-methylanthraquinone, scopoletin, betulinic acid, corchoroside –A and cannogenol from the root extract of Corchorus olitorius. Out of these compounds, 2 - methyl anthraquinone and fusidic acids were new to the genus Corchorus and reported for the first time from C.olitorius. The triterpenoid antibiotic fusidic acid was obtained earlier from a fungi (Fusidium coccineum) , is now reported from the plant C.olitorius. Occurance of coumarins in Corchorus genus are rare, but the author could isolate scopoletin, a coumarin from this species.
