    Abstract: Systemic administration of anticancer drugs is associated with a number of side effects. Therefore, it needs some targeted drug delivery system to deliver the drug which would ensure relief from side effects along with the direct delivery of drug to the site of action in a controlled manner. Keeping in view the importance of mucoadhesive polymers i... Show More

    Abstract: Poly (acrylamide/maleic acid/gelatin) P(AAm/MA/G) hydrogels have been prepared by gamma radiation and their adsorption for chromium ion from aqueous solutions have been investigated. The structural of the hydrogels was monitored by FTIR. The swelling behavior of the hydrogels has been investigated in distilled water and different pH's values at amb... Show More
