Developing a Mathematical Model for the Controlled Release Over Time of Sulfentrazone Herbicide from Biodegradable Polymer

In our research group, controlled release systems for the sulfentrazone herbicide has been accomplished by encapsulating this bioactive compound into calcium alginate (Ca-ALG) biodegradable polymer fashion and the release mechanisms were verified by using Korsmeyer-Peppas model (KP). However, the KP model does not allow to evaluate all the phenomena involved in the (Mt/M∞ versus t) curves. Thus, the aim of this work is the development of a new mathematical model to interpret the distinct regions of the controlled release assays of the Sulfentrazone herbicide encapsulated in Ca-ALG microparti...
