Abstract

This paper addresses the modification of poly(dimethylsiloxane), i.e. PDMS, using plasma surface treatment and a novel application of the membrane created. A set of model compounds were analysed to determine their permeation through PDMS both with, and without, plasma treatment. It was found that plasma treatment reduced permeation for the majority of compounds yet had little effect for some compounds, such as caffeine, with results indicating that polarity plays an important role in permeation, as is seen in human skin. Most importantly, a direct correlation was observed between plasma-modified permeation data and literature data through calculation of membrane permeability (Kp) values implying plasma-modified silicone membrane (PMSM) could be considered a suitable in vivo replacement to predict clinical skin permeation
