Next generation transdermal drug delivery – An electrochemical approach to pH manipulationfor controlled release within smart patch technologies

A Anderson, J Davis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The development and characterization of a nanostructured conductive film capable of facilitating thecontrolled dissolution of enteric coatings is described. Electrochemical manipulation of the local pH within laser etched pores is shown to facilitate the controlled release of a model drug. Moreover, an innovate approach to the design and operation of microfiber pH probe is critically appraised and itsapplication to the prototype drug release system demonstrated.
