Abstract:
In this paper, the authors report the preparation of pH-responsive microcapsules using poly(methacrylic acid) and different carbon nanomaterials, graphene oxide (GO) and fullerenol (FOH). Potential non-covalent interactions, as well as a comparative study in terms of stability and structural/morphological aspects of the graphene oxide microcapsules (MGO) and fullerenol microcapsules (MFOH), were carried out using Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, differential scanning calorimetry analysis, field emission scanning electron microscopy and high-resolution transition electron microscopy. The comparative drug release study for MGO and MFOH was done using ultraviolet illumination, fluorescence spectroscopy and so on. It was observed that the release of the drug (riboflavin) at pH 4 from MGO was faster, reaching the saturation point before 12 h, compared to that in MFOH, where the saturation point was achieved after 18 h. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report on a comparative study of MGO and MFOH in terms of their stability, pH-responsive nature and other characteristics. This study can be utilized where the carbon nanomaterials (GO/FOH) are used in the preparation of designer microcapsules for targeted drug delivery applications, since the pH varies in different parts of the human body.

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.
