This study involves in the selection of polymer, poly etherether ketone (PEEK), and its modification to serve the purpose of drug carrier. The polymer is sulfonated to increase the hydrophilic character, thereby making it feasible for functioning as a drug carrier. A blend of sulphonated PEEK and drug was made into thin membrane and characterized using FT-IR and surface morphology studies. Physico-chemical properties such as partition coefficient, permeability coefficients and diffusivity constant were measure for the sulphonated PEEK membranes.
