SINTESIS DAN MODIFIKASI LAPIS TIPIS KITOSAN-TRIPOLIFOSFAT

M Alauhdin, N Widiarti

Abstract


Dalam bidang medis, kitosan telah banyak digunakan yakni pada sistem penghantaran dan pelepasan obat. Pelepasan obat dengan kitosan memiliki keterbatasan karena kitosan cepat sekali menyerap air dan memiliki derajat swelling yang tinggi sehingga menyebabkan pelepasan obat terjadi dengan cepat. Diharapkan dengan memodifikasi struktur kitosan secara kimia dapat meningkatan kelarutannya dalam pelarut-pelarut organik. Telah dilakukan sintesis dan modifikasi lapis tipis kitosan. Modifikasi dilakukan melalui pembentukan ikatan silang kitosan dengan tripolifosfat (TPP) pada kondisi asam untuk menghasilkan kitosan-TPP. Ikatan silang yang terbentuk diamati dengan FTIR. Sementara itu, pengaruh hasil pengikatan silang diamati dengan membandingkan rasio swelling kitosan-TPP pada kondisi pH yang berbeda-beda. Rasio swelling lapis tipis cenderung konstan setelah terjadi pengikatan silang kitosan dengan tripolifosfat. Reaksi tripolifosfat dengan kitosan melalui pembentukan ikatan silang menjadikan lapis tipis semakin rapat sehingga molekul air sulit untuk berdifusi masuk ke dalam struktur kitosan-tripolifosfat. Hasil ini menunjukkan bahwa pengikatan silang mampu mengurangi kelarutan dan meningkatkan sifat mekanik kitosan. Rasio swelling lapis tipis berkurang dengan adanya pengikatan silang. Hal ini mengindikasikan bahwa pengikatan silang oleh TPP dapat mengurangi hidrofilitas lapis tipis karena gugus amino yang reaktif telah bereaksi dengan ion tripolifosfat.

In the medical field, chitosan has been widely used in the delivery systems and drug release. Drug release with chitosan has limitations because chitosan absorbs water very quickly and have a high degree of swelling that causes the release of the drug occurs rapidly. It is expected that by modifying the chemical structure of chitosan could improve its solubility in organic solvents. The synthesis and modification of chitosan thin film have been done. It was performed through the formation of crosslinked chitosan with tripolyphosphate (TPP) in acidic conditions to produce chitosan-TPP. The formed crosslinkings were observed using FTIR, while their influence was observed by comparing the swelling ratio of chitosan-TPP thin films at different pH values. The thin film swelling ratio tends to stable after crosslinking reaction. The crosslinking decreased water diffusion into the chitosan-TPP structures. These results showed that the crosslinking can decrease the solubility and increase the mechanical properties of the chitosan. The crosslinking also reduced the swelling ratio of thin film. It indicated that TPP crosslinking decreased hydrophility of the thin film due to the reactive amino groups of chitosan have reacted with tripolyphosphate ions.
