|Abstract:||Nanostructured capsules comprised of the anionic bile salt, sodium taurodeoxycholate (STDC), and the biocompatible cationic polymer, chitosan, were prepared to assess their potential as novel tailored release nanomaterials. For comparison, a previously studied system, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), and polydiallyldimethylammonium chloride (polyDADMAC) was also investigated. Crossed-polarizing light microscopy (CPLM) and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) identified the presence of lamellar and hexagonal phase at the surfactant–polymer interface of the respective systems. The hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions between the oppositely charged components were studied by varying temperature and salt concentration, respectively, and were found to influence the liquid-crystalline nanostructure formed. The hexagonal phase persisted at high temperatures, however the lamellar phase structure was lost above ca. 45 °C. Both mesophases were found to dissociate upon addition of 4% NaCl solution. The rate of release of the model hydrophilic drug, Rhodamine B (RhB), from the lamellar phase significantly increased in response to changes in the solution conditions studied, suggesting that modulating the drug release from these bile salt–chitosan capsules is readily achieved. In contrast, release from the hexagonal phase capsules had no appreciable response to the stimuli applied. These findings provide a platform for these oppositely charged surfactant and polymer systems to function as stimuli-responsive or sustained-release drug delivery systems. © 2014, American Chemical Society.|
