Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the influence of three chlorhexidine species, chlorhexidine base and its salts (diacetate and digluconate), on the physico-chemical features of liquid crystalline systems and on drug transport through lipophilic membranes. Nonionic surfactant, Synperonic A7 (PEG7-C13-15) was selected for the preparation of the liquid crystalline systems. Mixtures of different ratios of Synperonic A7 and water were prepared. The liquid crystalline systems were characterized using polarizing microscopy, small-angle neutron scattering and transmission electron microscopy. Membrane transport was also examined. The addition of chlorhexidine species to the liquid crystalline system modified the structure of the liquid crystalline system. As a result of liquid crystal-drug interaction, the solubility of chlorhexidine base and its diffusion through lipophilic membranes increased in comparison with those of the chlorhexidine salts.
