Abstract

The aim of this study is to prepare a nanostructured lipid carrier -NLC- containing Fentanyl Citrate drug. The materials were selected in a way to achieve a nanostructure with lower particle size and higher drug entrapment efficiency. For this purpose, we used two mathematical models, Van Krevelen-Hoftyze and Hoy’s methods, which are based on the calculation of solubility parameters. Various NLC formulations are prepared experimentally to validate the mathematical modeling results. Hot homogenization method was used for NLC preparation. DLS, HPLC, TEM and DSC analyses are performed to calculate the size, drug entrapment efficiency, morphology and thermal behavior of particles, respectively. Experimental results suggest that the best NLC formulation has a particle size of 90 nm with a spherical morphology and drug entrapment efficiency of about 82%. A comparison of the mathematical and experimental results exhibits that Van Krevelen-Hoftyzer method is unable to provide an accurate estimation of the decreasing trend of particle size by chaining the components of NLC. However, Hoy’s method seems to be suitable for this purpose. Moreover, both mathematical methods could successfully estimate variation trend of drug entrapment efficiency by chaining the NLC components. Results show that surfactants-lipids solubility parameter has a bearing on the nanoparticle size while drug-lipid solubility parameter affects drug entrapment efficiency.
