Formulation Variables Of Clotrimazole-Loaded Cubic Liquid Crystalline Nannoparticles?

Good Essays
In our previous report, 21 we investigated the influence of formulation variables of clotrimazole-loaded cubic liquid crystalline nanoparticles. The composition of chitosan tailored cubic nanoparticles was optimized employing central composite design. The findings of Small angle X-ray scattering analysis confirmed the presence of D and P cubic phases in nanoparticles. Most importantly, considerable improvement in mucin binding was observed upon incorporation of chitosan owing to electrostatic interaction between cationic chitosan-tailored cubic nanoparticles and anionic mucin layer of mucosa. The optimal conditions obtained were: fraction of Pluronic F127-8.33% (w/w) and concentration of chitosan- 0.17% (w/w). The optimal chitosan-tailored …show more content…
1 compares the rheology of CNC and CC while Fig. 2 illustrates the rheological behavior of CG and CNG. It can be observed that viscosity of cream formulations was remarkably higher to that of gel preparations. Further, in all cases viscosity decreased gradually as shear rate increased indicating pseudoplastic behavior. However, non linear responses were observed in case of cream dosage forms which might be attributed to structural changes caused by shearing.31 The viscosity of CNG was comparatively higher to that of CG. On the other hand, viscosity of CNC was lesser than …show more content…
The order of maximal adhesive force can be ranked as: CNG>CG>CNC>CC>Commercial cream (Clocip®)>Commercial gel (Leezole®).The increased bioadhesivity of gel formulations over cream formulations could be attributed to the presence of the well known mucoadhesive agent HPMC32, 33 employed as gelling agent. Furthermore, it is quite noticeable that cubic nanoparticles based formulations elicited greater mucoadhesion to mucin gel as compared to that of conventional formulations and commercial preparations. Cubic phases are reported to have plausible bioadhesive properties. Further, tailoring of cubic nanoparticles with chitosan has improved the adhesivity of gel and cream to the mucin possibly by ionic interaction between cationic amino group of chitosan and anionic mucin. 34,

    Conclusions This study reports the partial replacement of MK by non-calcined WTS in the production of geopolymer with sodium silicate from RHA. The results showed that the properties of geopolymers binders are highly dependent on the WTS content in the mixture. The binder with WTS increased the setting times, kinetics of temperature test showed low rates of geopolymerization reactions. The workability and the mechanical properties of the geopolymer mortars decreased as the WTS content in the binder increased. The compressive strengths in all curing ages were higher than the minimum required for several types of building components.…

    The predicted value and experimental values were nearly similar to each other. In the present study, sugar recovery was high in acid pretreated hydrolysate which might be due to degradation of cellulosic fractions (Zhang et al., 2006). The lignin fragments were then dissolved in the liquid phase and resulted in digestibility of the solid fraction. In case of dilute acid pretreated pearl millet biomass recorded 0.120 g / g of biomass sugar recovery which was reported by Krishania (et al., 2010), (0.393 to…

    Equations (1.4) and (1.5) can be combined to obtain the equation for piezoelectric polarization as, P_pz=2 (a_s-a_o)/a_o (e_31-c_13/c_33 e_33) (1.6) The total polarization P tot is calculated by summing together the two polarization components: P_tol =〖 P〗_sp + P_pz . (1.7) Total polarization in InGaN and AlGaN as a function of molar fraction is plotted in Fig. 1.6, assuming unstrained GaN is used as substrate. These polarization effects were found to be much stronger in c-face nitrides than in other III-V compounds. With the growth direction along the c-axis, both types of polarization add up to the surface charge density can be given by, qσ_2D=P_sp+P_pz=P_sp+2 (a_s-a_o)/a_o (e_31-c_13/c_33 e_33 ) (1.8) Table 1.2: Calculated values for spontaneous polarization and piezoelectric constants in group III nitrides[28].…

    This can be due to energy released after the adsorption process being higher than that need to the solvent molecules. The negative value of enthalpy indicates that the process is exothermic and the physisorption behavior may be physical in nature and it can be easily reversed by supplying the heat equal to the adsorption system. The positive value of entropy significantly suggests that the random orientation in solute-solvent complex or interface between solid/solution during the adsorption. When ΔS is positive, increased spontaneity is favoured in the molecular movement. The negative value of enthalpy and positive value of entropy signifies that molecular dipoles are spontaneously and allinged oriented at all…

    3.1 Cure characteristics of CIIR with accelerated sulphur The cure characteristics of CIIR with an efficient type of accelerated sulphur (EV) system at different vulcanization temperatures are depicted in Figure 2 and Table 2 respectively. The EV system used here particularly to reduce the set properties at elevated temperature as it possesses relatively less polysulfidic linkages as compared to the conventional sulphur vulcanization (CV) system. It can be seen from the figure that the vulcanization curve at 160°C has achieved the highest rheometric torque within 12 minutes of curing followed by a cure plateau region up to 35 minutes. Afterwards, the rheometric torque decreased due to reversion. The reversion is a well-known phenomenon observed…

    This strong adhesion was attributed to the existence of the diffusion layer. 3.4 Wear properties The friction coefficients of γ-TiAl and Zr-Y alloyed layer varied with sliding distance at ambient temperature and 500°C are shown in Fig. 7. It could be seen from Fig.7 that no matter at ambient temperature or 500°C, the friction coefficients of Zr-Y alloyed layer were much smaller and smoother than the γ-TiAl, which was due to the high hardness. However, the friction coefficients increased as the temperature increased27.…

    Abstract This experiment involved an electrophilic aromatic substitution of bromobenzene. Two products were formed: 4-nitrobromobenzene (4-NBB) and 2-nitrobromobenzene (2-NBB). Utilizing column chromatography and recrystallization, separation and purification of the two products was obtained. The mass of 4-NBB, the para product, was 1.57 grams, while the mass of 2-NBB, the ortho product, was 0.80 grams. The para product was expected to have the higher yield, since it is more stable and consequently harder to break down throughout the experiment.…

    To develop and validate high performance liquid chromatographic method for estimation of quetiapine fumarate from bulk and tablet dosage form. The separation was achieved on a C18 column using a mixture of phosphate buffer, acetonitrile and methanol in the ratio 50:40:10 v/v/v with a flow rate of 1 ml/min and detection wavelength at 245 nm. The method was validated for linearity, accuracy, precision and specificity as per ICH guidelines. The developed and validated method was successfully used for the quantitative analysis of commercially available dosage form. The retention time of quetiapine fumarate was found to be at 5.08 min.…

    3. Results and discussion 3.1 Microstructural characterization The Roman spectrum of Cr-DLC coating was shown in Fig.1. The overlapped D peak and G peaks located at 1363cm-1 and 1564cm-1 were obtained after fitted with Gaussian curves, respectively. It’s well known that the content of the graphite crystal was closely related to the value of ID/IG [22]. And the ratio of intensity between D peak and G peak (ID/IG) of Cr-DLC coating could be calculated by the fitted curve.…
