Soft materials have the tendency to deform under conditions when the material is subjected to higher temperature or even under normal room temperature conditions. Polymers and gels are considered as soft materials due to their integrative property under defined or non-defined conditions. This is due to the weak molecular interaction between two or more chemical compounds which make up the product. Soft materials find its advantage in the field of pharmacology and biotechnology by helping in formulating the drug in a semi-solid or liquid form and in improving the drug delivery systems.
