Synthesis and drug release behavior of poly (trimethylene carbonate)-poly (ethylene glycol)-poly (trimethylene carbonate) nanoparticles



Synthesis and drug release behavior of poly (trimethylene carbonate)-poly (ethylene glycol)-poly (trimethylene carbonate) nanoparticles



Biomaterials 26(14): 2089-2094



ABA-type triblock copolymers poly (trimethylene carbonate)-poly (ethylene glycol)-poly (trimethylene carbonate) were synthesized by ring-opening polymerization of trimethylene carbonate initiated by dihydroxyl poly (ethylene glycol). The critical micelle concentration of amphiphilic triblock copolymers in aqueous solution was determined by fluorescence spectroscopy using 9-chloromethyl anthracene as fluorescence probe. Core-shell-type nanoparticles were prepared by the dialysis technique. Transmission electron microscopy images showed that these nanoparticles were regularly spherical in shape. Micelle size determined by dynamic light scattering is 50-160 nm. Anticancer drug methotrexate (MTX) as model drug was loaded in the polymeric nanoparticles. X-ray powder diffraction spectra showed that model drugs were molecularly dispersed in the core. In vitro release behavior of MTX was investigated.
