    Preparation of ethyl cellulose microcapsules containing perphenazine and polymeric perphenazine based on acryloyl chloride for physical and chemical studies of drug release control [electronic resource]

    , Article Polymer International ; Volume 47, Issue 4, pages 413–418, December 1998 Zandi, M ; Pourjavadi, A ; Hashemi, S. A ; Arabi. , H ; Sharif University of Technology
    Abstract
    The preparation of microcapsules containing perphenazine by solvent evaporation using ethyl cellulose is described. The microparticles are formed after solvent evaporation and polymer precipitation. The drug was dissolved in a polymer solution and emulsified into an aqueous phase to form microcapsules. To study the effects on particle size, encapsulation efficiency and morphology, three different molecular weights of ethyl cellulose (Mw=47000, 71000 and 99000) were used. Covalent bonding of drugs to polymers via hydrolytically or enzymatically cleavable covalent bond was achieved for sustained drug delivery. The release rate of perphenazine from these systems was investigated  

    Monodispersed polymeric nanoparticles fabrication by electrospray atomization

    , Article International Journal of Polymeric Materials and Polymeric Biomaterials ; Volume 61, Issue 8 , 2012 , Pages 611-626 ; 00914037 (ISSN) Zarrabi, A ; Vossoughi, M ; Alemzadeh, I ; Chitsazi, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    The feasibility of fabricating relatively monodispersed polymeric nanoparticles by the electrospray method in a modified electrospray set-up is demonstrated in this study. The polymer solution is electrosprayed in the single cone-jet regime through a nozzle. After solvent evaporation, during which particles pave from the nozzle to collector, the fabricated nanoparticles can be collected in deionized water, which plays the role of surfactant for particles, not allowing them to aggregate. The results of scanning electron microscope and dynamic light scattering analysis clearly confirm the fabrication of monodispersed spherical polymeric nanoparticles with diameter range from 80 to 120nm with... 

    Electrospray: novel fabrication method for biodegradable polymeric nanoparticles for further applications in drug delivery systems

    Abstract
    Electrospray is an old processing technique that has recently been rediscovered. This technology is revolutionizing the biomaterials and nanotechnology fields by opening up new areas of research in fabricating drug delivery nano-devices. Due to their size, nanoparticles have the advantage of reaching less accessible sites in the body by escaping phagocytosis and entering tiny capillaries. Nanoparticles also have the unique property to accumulate at the site of inflammation and therefore, are very suitable for targeted drug delivery. The feasibility of fabricating relatively monodispersed polymeric nanoparticles by electrospray method in a modified electrospray setup is demonstrated in this... 

    Electrochemical study of Azathioprine at thin carbon nanoparticle composite film electrode

    , Article Electrochemistry Communications ; Volume 11, Issue 7 , 2009 , Pages 1425-1428 ; 13882481 (ISSN) Shahrokhian, S ; Ghalkhani, M ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    Thin carbon nanoparticle/Nafion film (CNP/N), as a novel electrode material, is formed on the surface of the glassy carbon electrode in a simple solvent evaporation process. The electrochemical behavior of Azathioprine (Aza) at the CNP/N-modified electrode is investigated in detail by the means of cyclic voltammetry. During the electrochemical reduction of Aza, an irreversible cathodic peak is appeared. Cyclic voltammetric studies indicated that the reduction process has an irreversible and adsorption-like behavior. The observed reduction peak is attributed to a four-electron process referring to the reduction of nitro group to the corresponding hydroxylamine. The prepared electrode showed... 

    Ionic liquids enhanced performance of PVC gels actuator

    Abstract
    Stimulated devices are highly demanded for actuators and artificial muscles in the recent era but susceptible to low deformation at an applied voltage. In the present work, ionic liquids (ILs) based gel films were prepared from the polyvinyl chloride (PVC), dibutyl adipate (DBA), 1-butyl, 3-methimidazolium chloride, and 1-pentyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate by a simple solvent evaporation method. The structural, morphological, optical, and mechanical properties of the composite PVC/ILs gel were characterized by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), Large Angle X-ray scattering (LAXS), UV–visible (UV–vis) absorption spectroscopy, scanning electron micrpscopy (SEM) and...

    Voltammetric studies of sumatriptan on the surface of pyrolytic graphite electrode modified with multi-walled carbon nanotubes decorated with silver nanoparticles

    , Article Talanta ; Volume 80, Issue 1 , 2009 , Pages 31-38 ; 00399140 (ISSN) Ghalkhani, M ; Shahrokhian, S ; Ghorbani Bidkorbeh, F ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    Multi-walled carbon nanotube decorated with silver nanoparticles (AgNPs-MWCNT) is used as an effective strategy for modification of the surface of pyrolytic graphite electrode (PGE). This modification procedure improved colloidal dispersion of the decorated MWCNTs in water, affording uniform and stable thin films for altering the surface properties of the working electrode. Robust electrode for sensing applications is obtained in a simple solvent evaporation process. The electrochemical behavior of sumatriptan (Sum) at the bare PGE and AgNPs-MWCNT modified PGE is investigated. The results indicate that the AgNPs-MWCNT modified PGE significantly enhanced the oxidation peak current of Sum. A...
