Abstract: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of the presence of the water-soluble polymer polyethylene glycol (PEG)-MW=35000 g/mol-on the complexation of the phototoxic anti-inflammatory drug naproxen, in its sodium salt form, with beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD). The data revealed that the polymer does not interact with the uncomplexed naproxen whereas it does with the beta-CD. The presence of different proportions of PEG, in the 0-1% (w/w) range, systematically lowers K(app) of the formation of the naprox…
