Solubilisation of aromatics drugs in formularizations micelares of mixed of triblock copolymes

by Nobre Pinho, Maria Elenir

Abstract (Summary)
The aim of this work was to investigate mixed systems of triblock copolymer type E62P39E62 (commercially denoted F87) and E137S18E137 (prepared by oxyanionic polymerization) as novel vehicles for solubilisation and controlled delivery of aromatics drugs The desirable gelation characteristics of solutions of the EmPnEm copolymers with the greater solubilising capacities of solutions of the EmSnEm were investigatedo using an inverted tube test method and by oscillatory rheometry. The structure of the gels was obtained by small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and polarized-light microscopy (PLM).The hydrodynamic radius (rh) of the micelle was obtained by dynamic light scattering (DLS). The solubilisation capacity (scp) for the separate copolymers and for mixtures of the two in the range 50/50 to 90/10 wt % E137S18E137/E62P39E62was evaluated by UV-Vis. The fluid/gel boundaries for the copolymers alone and its mixtures were determined by the tube inversion method and confirmed by rheometry. SAXS and PLM for mixture 1 (50/50 wt % E137S18E137/E62P39E62 and for E137S18E137 and E62P39E62 alone) all have shown similar body-centred cubic (bcc) structures with similar lattice dimensions as confirmed by rheology. DLS indicated micelle formation determined by E62P39E62 copolymer. The scp measured for the separate copolymers and its mixtures revealed promise results for application of binary mixtures of copolymer as systems for drug release involving in situ gelation.
