The aim of current study is to investigate the influence of different encapsulation parameters on entrapment of a model lipophilic molecule, rhodamine into self-assembled layer-by-layer (LbL) microcapsules. Charged polymers including polyallylamine hydrochloride (PAH) and poly (sodium-4-styrene sulfonic acid) (PSS) were used to prepare microcapsules on a sacrificial calcium carbonate template. Microcapsules with six bilayers of charged polymers were characterized using scanning electron microscope (SEM), differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR). Influence of incubation time, drug concentration, pH and ionic strength on entrapment of rhodamine into microcapsules was studied. Microscopy showed that calcium carbonate microspheres and LbL microcapsules were spherical in shape, with average particle size of 1.5?0.7μm and 2.3?0.2μm respectively. FT-IR studies showed proportional increase in area of characteristic peaks of PAH and PSS in prepared microcapsules. DSC thermograms showed interaction of polymers in microcapsules and rhodamine entrapment with shift in Tg of polymers and Tm of rhodamine. One hour incubation of microcapsules with rhodamine solution showed encapsulation efficiency of 60.27?1.65%. Rhodamine showed increased encapsulation in microcapsules with increase in concentration from 0.25?1mg/mL and pH from 2 to 8 with maximum of 42.80 ? 5.27% at pH 6.75. Increase in salt concentration from 0 ? 0.5M show increase in encapsulation efficiency from 42.80 ? 5.27% to 61.00 ? 4.08%. In-vitro release studies showed controlled release of rhodamine from microcapsules with 64% released over a period of 48hr in comparison to 98% release at 5hr for rhodamine solution. Our studies showed that self-assembled LbL microcapsules can be developed as carriers for controlled delivery of charged lipophilic molecules.
