Drug Releasing Mechanism from Redox Active Micelles
Electrochemical reaction of FPEG is coupled with the preceding disassembled reaction of micelles in aqueous solution. The change in diffusion species fromthe micelles to the monomers at cmc in the concentration gradient in diffusion layers appeared in case of bulk electrolysis of FPEG. The drug releasing mechanism from the redox active micelles were clarified.
