Abstract

Investigation of the effects of viscoelasticity and hydration kinetic on the drug release behavior from the poly (sodium acrylate)-grafted-gellan matrix (PSAc-g-GG) was the main objective of this study. At first, poly (acrylic acid)-grafted-gellan was treated with 0.05M NaOH to obtain poly (sodium acrylate)-grafted-gellan followed by its purification and subsequent lyophilicity study and viscoelastic study on PSAc-g-GG with different degree of grafting. The study revealed that the degree of grafting greatly affects the viscoelastic and rheologic characteristics of the copolymer, which further affect the drug release profile from the polymeric matrix. The  copolymer with highest grafting (626.3%) exhibited much higher starting % strain (17.79%), stress (53.7 Pa) for structural breakdown at G= Gꞌꞌ (214.4 Pa), higher storage modulus (G), much greater values of complex viscosity (11.5 Pa.s) and cross-over point (G= Gꞌꞌ =271.65 Pa) compared to that of the batch of copolymer with lower grafting. The water uptake index (%WE) was found to be directly proportional to the percentage grafting (%G), whereas the batches with higher grafting  revealed lower initial swelling rate representing its inversely proportional relation to %grafting in case of 0.1N HCl acid. Equilibrium swelling and hydration were also found to be proportional to % grafting.  The similar effect was observed in phosphate buffer solution (pH 6.8) with an exception that the degree of the swelling parameters obtained from phosphate buffer was very much greater compared to that found in 0.1N HCl. PSAc-g-GG exhibited extended drug release over a period of 10 hours with the drug release mechanism based on Case-1 Fickian diffusion or square root of time kinetic. The study also exhibited the usefulness of viscoelastic and swelling study in order to identify the effects of the degree of grafting on the drug release.
