Poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxide)-poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO-PPO-PEO) (F127) hydrogels have been used to deliver nitric oxide (NO) topically in biomedical applications. Here, the effect of F127 microenvironments on the photochemical NO release from S-nitrosoglutathione (GSNO) was investigated in F127 solutions 7.6 wt% 15 wt% and 22.5 wt% at 15 degrees C and 37 degrees C. Small-angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) and Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) measurements, along with proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (H-1 NMR) spectral shifts and T-2 relaxation data at six different concentration-temperature conditions, allowed identifying F127 microphases characterized by: a sol phase of unimers; micelles in non-defined periodic order, and a gel phase of cubic packed micelles. Kinetic measurements showed that GSNO photodecompositon proceeds faster in micellized F127 where GSNO is segregated to the intermicellar microenvironment. Real time kinetic monitoring of NO release and T-2 relaxation profiles showed that NO is preferentially partitioned into the hydrophobic PPO cores of the F127 micelles, with the consequent decrease in its rate of release to the gas phase. These results show that F127 microphases affect both the kinetics of GSNO photodecomposition and the rate of NO escape and can be used to modulate the photochemical NO delivery from F127/GSNO solutions.
