A novel gelled microemulsion was prepared in the presence of the low molecular weight gelator N-stearine-N'-stearyl-L-phenylalanine at a very low concentration. It is completely different from the conventional microemulsion-based gels (MBGs) usually formed by polymeric gelling agents, such as gelatin, agar and kappa-carrageenan. The microemulsion consists of i-propyl myristate, Tween 80, propylene glycol and water. The gelled microemulsions showed good thermo-reversibility. The gel-to-sol transition temperature (T(GS)) of gelled microemulsion depends upon the concentration of gelator and the composition of the microemulsions. The gelation mechanism was investigated by polarized optical microscopy (POM) and FT-IR. POM images show elongated and strand-like crystallites formed by the aggregation of the gelator, ultimately resulting in the gelation of the microemulsion. FT-IR analysis indicates that intermolecular hydrogen bonds are responsible for the formation of gelator aggregates. Water-soluble sodium salicylate was used as a model drug for the investigation of the release from the gelled microemulsions. The release profiles exhibited a controlled release and followed the first-order release kinetics. The release rates decreased with an increase of the gelator and isopropyl myristate contents. These results reveal potential applications of gelled microemulsion in drug delivery systems.
