Hydrophobic Mesh Slows Drug Release
A superhydrophobic polymeric mesh, in which the displacement of air slows the progress of infiltrating water, has been designed as a new type of slow-release drug delivery system (J. Am. Chem. Soc., DOI: 10.1021/ja211148a). A team led by Boston University’s Mark W. Grinstaff used an electrospinning technique to create the mesh from hydroxycaproic acid, glycerol, and . . .
