2005 by CRC Press The following section provides the reader with a general overview of the different types of polymers that are used primarily in biomedical applications with an emphasis on drug delivery. 1 lists the structures of commonly used polymers in drug delivery as discussed in the following sections. The list is not comprehensive and intends to introduce some of the polymers used in this field. 1 BIODEGRADABLE POLYMERS Biodegradable polymers break down to smaller fragments due to pH change or enzymatic hydrolysis.
Melting peaks of the phase-separated homopolymers are usually identified using DSC. 2 THERMOGRAVIMETRIC ANALYSIS (TGA) Other thermal methods of analysis include thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), also known as thermogravimetry (TG). This technique measures the change in weight of a polymer as a function of temperature or time. The sample in nitrogen or in an oxidizing atmosphere is brought from ambient to a constant high temperature and the mass of the sample is recorded continuously as temperature is increased at a constant rate.
C, by measuring R for a single angle only. 3 Solution Viscometry This method assumes that the viscosity of a polymer solution depends on the concentration and the average molecular size of the molecules. The experimental technique employed for determining Mv requires determination of the intrinsic viscosity for the polymer/solvent system, which is related to Mv based on the Mark–Houwink equation: ½ ¼ KMv ð1:11Þ where K and are empirical constants for a particular system. Since the hydrodynamic volume or the effective size of a molecule depends on the extent of interactions of the solute molecules with the solvent, solution viscosity in turn depends on the type of solvent used.
