Controlled and sustained release of pharmaceuticals via single step solvent-free encapsulation.


PMID 25522209

Abstract

Herein, we report a novel and solvent-free technique for the encapsulation of pharmaceuticals that allows achieving controllable release rates. This method utilizes the deposition of a plasma polymer coating of controlled chemistry and thickness on the outer surface of drug particles placed under continuous agitation.
