Abstract: Thermoreversible nasal gels of Vitamin B(12) using pluronic PF 127 were aimed to improve absorption and patient compliance. In the present research work, effects of Vitamin B(12) and gel additives, viz. PF concentration, osmolarity, polyethylene glycol (PEG 15000) on thermodynamic properties of phase transitions at gelation (T(1)) and gel melting (T(2)) is reported. Aqueous PF 127 gels prepared by cold method containing pluronic (20-24%, w/w), vitamin, sorbitol, PEG, and benzalkonium chloride. T(1) decreases a…
