A mathematical model of an aqueous-organic partition-based controlled release system using microporous membranes.

Abstract

A mathematical model with an exact solution is presented for the membrane-controlled release of small molecules such as nicotine, caffeine, and benzoic acid initially present in solution in the reservoir of the device. Both hollow fiber and flat membrane device geometries are considered. The reservoir is bounded by a microporous membrane, the pores of which… (More)
