Synthetic copolymer [poly(Q-co-VP)] was synthesized by free-radical polymerization at 60[degrees]C and their molecular structure was confirmed by FTIR and potentiometric analysis. A model drug (Cefotaxime) was loaded and its release was studied in various media simulating human gastrointestinal tract.
