Abstract

In the present review we discuss different approaches to pharmaceutical applications of marine lipids. Investigation of the use of marine lipids as dermal permeation enhancers, the synthesis of triacylglycerols highly enriched in polyunsaturated fatty acids, dermal pro-drugs derivatives of unsaturated fatty acids and diacyl glyceryl derivatives, and the possible synthesis of soft disinfectants from marine fatty acids.
