The solubilization of four phenolic antioxidants, namely p-hydroxybenzoic acid (PHBAA), syringic acid, sinapic acid, and quercetin in micelles of an ethylene oxide (EO)-propylene oxide (PO) triblock copolymer Pluronic® P104 (EO27-PO61-EO27, PPO mol wt=3540, % PEO=40) was examined at different temperatures, pHs, and in the presence of sodium chloride. The(More)
Understanding the in-vitro release profile of drugs from drug eluting devices such as cardiac stent is crucial in designing and optimizing the drug embedded matrices. Sirolimus (SRL), a widely used anti-inflammatory/antiproliferative/immunosuppressive hydrophobic drug undergoes irreversible changes such as hydrolysis leading to erroneous assessment of the(More)
The effect of three ionic liquids (ILs) 1-alkyl 3-methyl imidazlolium tetraflouroborates (C(n)mim BF(4)n=4, 6, 8) on micellar solutions of an ethylene oxide-propylene oxide block copolymer (PEO-PPO-PEO), Pluronic® P103 was examined from scattering and NMR techniques. The ILs alter the cloud point and micelle size dependant on their alkyl chain length and(More)
