Abstract:
pH responsive hydrogels, which selectively show highest swelling capacity around physiological pH (~7.4) compared to both acidic and basic pH, are not known. In the current work, such hydrogels are prepared using one pot synthetic approach by reacting branched PEI with an azetidinium based crosslinker in water. Swelling capacity of the hydrogels is studied to understand the influence of crosslinking density and pH. The swelling capacity (SC) of the hydrogels decreases with increasing crosslinking density as expected. Further swelling capacity shows an excellent pH responsive behavior which is selectively higher around physiological pH (~7.4), when compared to pH 4, 7, 9.2 and 12. Selective swelling behavior around physiological pH also expected to influence the pH responsive drug release kinetics. To study that, drug encapsulated hydrogels are prepared and their release kinetics is studied as a function of pH. Both swelling capacity and drug release have shown very similar pH responsive trend and selectively higher drug release was observed around pH 7.4.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
