Probing the impact of porosity on swelling kinetics of hydrophilic matrices

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The aim of the present investigation was to understand the swelling behaviour of
HPMC and PEO-based matrices and to evaluate the impact of porosity on the
swelling kinetics. It was noticed that the HPMC has higher swelling rates but both
undergo diffusion oriented swelling mechanism. It could also the concluded that the
porosity has a marked influence in the development of gel layer on the surface of
these matrices.
