Surface functionalization of SBA - 15 particles for amoxicillin delivery

Sevimli, Filiz F
There are several studies in order to control drug delivery, decrease the toxicity of drugs and also for novel biomedical applications. It is necessary to be able to control the release of the drug within the body by using drug delivery systems. Mesoporous silica compounds have only been discovered twenty years ago and they have already attracted many researchers to study these materials for several applications. SBA-15 particles have a highly ordered regular structure and are a good matrix for guest-host applications. The aim of this study is to be able to address whether the surface functionalization of SBA-15 samples would improve the loading of a drug into these particles. The synthesized SBA-15 particles were surface functionalized by post - grafting synthesis method in order to be used as carrier materials for drug delivery. Amoxicillin was used as a model drug. These mesoporous materials have been characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), small-angle X-ray spectroscopy (SAXS), fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), N2 adsorption/ desorption, solid-state silicon nuclear magnetic resonance (Si-NMR), high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), ultra-violet (UV) spectroscopy, elemental and thermo gravimetric analysis (TGA). The effect of concentration difference and the type of alkoxysilanes used for the functionalization have been discussed in terms of loading amoxicillin and controlling the delivery. Drug delivery systems have many further applications that still need to be investigated in areas such as neurosciences, cancer and biomedical engineering.


Synthesis and characterization of fatty acid based hyperbranched polymers for anti-cancer drug delivery
Güç, Esra; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biology (2008)
Conventional methods of chemotherapy requires novel therapy systems due to serious side effects and inefficiency of drug administration. In recent years many studies are carried out to improve drug delivery systems. Polymers are one of the most important elements for drug delivery research due to their versatility. By the discovery of dendritic polymers, drug delivery studies gained a new vision. Highly branched monodisperse structure, multiple sites of attachment, well-defined size and controllable physica...
Surface functionalization of sba-15 particles for celecoxib delivery
Gezer, Gamze; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Department of Chemistry (2013)
Mesoporous silica particles have been used to enhance the loading capacity of drugs into these particles, increase bioavailability and control drug release. In this study SBA-15 particles were synthesized and functionalized to improve the loading capacity and release rate of drug. Then, drug loading and release process were investigated. Celecoxib was chosen as a model drug which is very hydrophobic. SBA-15 particles were used due to their highly ordered, well-defined mesoporous structure. These particles w...
Differential response to doxorubicin in breast cancer subtypes simulated by a microfluidic tumor model

Successful drug delivery and overcoming drug resistance are the primary clinical challenges for management and treatment of cancer. The ability to rapidly screen drugs and delivery systems within physiologically relevant environments is critically important; yet is currently limited due to lack of appropriate tumor models. To address this problem, we developed the Tumor-microenvironment-on-chip (T-MOC), a new microfluidic tumor model simulating the interstitial flow, plasma clearance, and transport of the d...
Inclusion of celecoxib in the SBA-15 mesoporous silica: drug loading and release property
Eren, Zeynep Seda; Yılmaz, Ayşen; Department of Chemistry (2016)
Mesoporous silica particles have been used to enhance the loading capacity of drugs into the support, increase the solubility of drug and control drug release. In this study, poorly water-soluble, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug with relatively low bioavailability Celecoxib, was used as a model drug in order to determine the drug loading and release properties of silica particles. In order to synthesize SBA15 particles, hydrothermal synthesis method was used, SBA-15 samples were functionalized by post-g...
Peptide-based drug systems /
Parlak, Melek; Özçubukçu, Salih; Department of Chemistry (2017)
The increasing appeal of safe, cheap and effective treatments against various type of diseases has paved the way for the discovery and development of innovative peptide-based drug and drug delivery systems. The relative ease with which peptide based-materials can be synthesized and the wide range of synthetic techniques available have ensured that these materials can be tuned to adopt specific conformation or modified to contain specific functional groups. Our major focus in this thesis is developing peptid...
