Polymer-drug interactions and wetting of solid dispersions
YKI – Ytkemiska institutet.
2010 (English)In: European Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, ISSN 0928-0987, E-ISSN 1879-0720, Vol. 39, no 1-3, p. 125-133Article in journal (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

We demonstrate the ability of drugs to influence the wetting of solid dispersion tablets in unexpected ways. Five model drugs of different water solubility and ability to interact with the involved polymers were incorporated in hydrophilic polymer matrices, made of either hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) or polyvinyl pyrrolidone (PVP). The physical mixtures of all combinations of drug and polymer presented Surface hydrophobicities, as measured by the equilibrium advancing contact angle of water, which are expected for materials that do not influence the interactions of each other with water. However, the solid dispersions containing HPMC deviated from this regular behaviour and displayed contact angles below those of the pure compounds involved. either drug or polymer. This behaviour is explained by changed surface exposure of HPMC side groups, as a result of changes in intermolecular hydrogen bonds. In addition to water contact angle measurements, we employed NMR imaging to monitor the time course of water ingress and swelling.
