Curcumin has various physiological functions such as anti-oxidation, anti-cancer and prevention of Alzheimer's disease, but its poor water solubility and unstable physicochemical property limits the development and application of curcumin. The nano delivery carriers for curcumin prepared by nanotechnology can effectively solve these problems above. This paper summarized the research reports and literatures at home and abroad in recent years, categorized the nanocarriers of curcumin and analysed the definitions, preparation methods, properties and features, advantages and disadvantages of nano-emulsion, solid lipid particles, liposome, cyclodextrin inclusion compound respectively. In addition, this paper predicted application prospects of curcumin in the fields of food and medicine and provided references for the comprehensive development and utilization of curcumin.
