Drug loaded polymer polycaprolactone, polyethylene glycol particles were synthesized using Emulsion-Solvent-Evaporation (ESE) process, and particle characteristics studied using SEM (Scanning Electron Microscopy), EDS and drug release tests. Ternary phase diagrams were determined for oil-water emulsion (o-w) and water-oil emulsion (w-o) for the emulsion formation and destabilization. Hydrophilic drug 5-flourouracil (5-FU), cytarabine (CTB) and hydrophobic drug ibuprofen (IBP), paclitaxel (PXT) were investigated for drug encapsulation and release analysis for a period of 9-days at pH (=7,
