This research is dedicated to the creation and analysis of Chitosan Nanoparticles loaded with Busulfan for potential medical applications. The main goal was to produce nanoparticles with specific physical and chemical properties and a sustained release of the drug. Nine different formulations (CNB-1 to CNB-9) were developed using varying concentrations of chitosan and tripolyphosphate (TPP) via a method called ionic gelation. The nanoparticles underwent extensive testing for their size distribution, electrical charge, drug entrapment efficiency, drug content, and how the drug was released over time in vitro. The results showed that CNB-4 had the most desirable characteristics, with an average size of 172 ± 2 nanometers, a slight positive charge (4 ± 1 millivolts), high drug entrapment, and a slow release of the drug over 24 hours. Further examination using techniques like Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) and Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) confirmed that CNB-4 was successfully formed and had a solid structure. DSC analysis showed no interactions between the drug and the polymer, while AFM images displayed dense, spherical nanoparticles. Over the course of 24 hours, CNB-4 released almost 90% of the therapeutic payload, according to in vitro release assays, demonstrating a continuous release of the medication. Statistical analysis revealed a strong correlation between the physical and chemical properties of the formulations and their release rates. In conclusion, CNB-4's favourable features made it an attractive prospect for controlled drug delivery in treatment for cancer. The findings of this study can be used to enhance drug delivery systems that rely on nanoparticles and to better understand how to optimise formulation parameters to achieve desired therapeutic effects.
