Abstract

Recently, hydrophobically functionalized polymers have been deployed as carriers to improve the encapsulation of hydrophobic drugs. The metal nanocomposites are extensively used to improve the biocompatibility of the formulation and target the drug to the specialized site. In our current study, naphthalene acetate (NAA) was incorporated into the amine group of chitosan to form a hydrophobically functionalized chitosan–NAA drug delivery carrier. The calcium ferrite nanoparticles (CFNP) were embedded in the chitosan–NAA matrix to form a super paramagnetic hybrid nanocarrier for controlled curcumin drug delivery. Various analytical techniques were performed to ensure the functional group modifications, thermal stability, surface nature and morphological behavior of synthesized hybrid carriers. The maximum encapsulation efficiency of 93.6% was obtained under the optimized conditions of drug to chitosan–NAA at 0.1, CFNP to chitosan–NAA at 0.75 and TPP to chitosan–NAA at 1.0 (w/w) ratios, respectively, by adapting Taguchi method. Drug release studies were conducted to determine the effect of pH, drug loading concentrations and magnetic field responses. The drug release data were fitted to various kinetic release models to understand the drug release mechanism. The biocompatibility of the hybrid material was tested using L929 mouse fibroblast cells. The cytotoxicity test against breast cancer cells (MCF-7) was also performed to study the anticancer property of the hybrid paramagnetic material. The prepared curcumin-loaded chitosan–NAA/CFNP was very active against cancer cells in comparison to the normal cells. The results confirmed the applicability of the hybrid nanocarriers in cancer cell-targeted drug delivery.
