Abstract: Interpenetrating polymer network (IPN) based formulation, consisting of sodium alginate and poly vinyl alcohol, were prepared by water-in-oil emulsion crosslinking method. IPN based formulation was cross-linked with glutaraldehyde, and loaded with diclofenac sodium (DS) as a model drug. Scanning electron microscopy revealed spherical nature of microspheres (size, 472-157 m). Drug entrapment efficiency (72%) was obtained depending upon concentration of crosslinking density. Novel formulation can be a potential carrier for controlled delivery of short half-lived drugs.
