Two-component supramolecular hydrogel for controlled drug release

Anna Patterson, David Kelham Smith

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A hybrid gel has been developed by combining two supramolecular gelators. Each gelator endows the hybrid gel with its own characteristics. One gelator enables pH-mediated controlled release of the active pharmaceutical ingredient naproxen, while the other new gelator enhances mechanical stability. Self-assembly thus gives multi-functional gels with potential applications.
