      The interaction of 1-anilinonaphthalene-8-sulphonate (ANS) with cross-linked poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (CPVP) was studied by the adsorption technique at different temperatures and at two different pH values. Analysis by the Scatchard method and the study made in the presence of urea showed that the iceberg structure of water affects the sorption of ANS to CPVP, leading to cooperativity. The observed Giles sorption isotherms at both the pH values were of theL-type which indicated the interaction of ANS in flat configuration with the binding site in CPVP. The sorption of ANS to CPVP was enhanced considerably at acidic pH due to some structural factors which also resulted in multilayer sorption at this pH. Comparison of binding of ANS to CPVP and to linear poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) demonstrated the greater contribution of hydrophobic interaction in CPVP than in the linear polymer.

      A physico-chemical investigation on the binding of some nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, Naproxen (NP) and Ketoprofen (KP) and a drug model compound, salicylic acid (SA) to poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP, molecular weight = 360,000), was performed at pH 7.1 by the fluorescence competition method employing 1-anilinonaphthalene-8-sulphonate (ANS) as the fluorescent probe. The binding affinities of these substrates to PVP are in the order KP < SA < NP which has been explained on the basis of their structural features and the consequent effect on the interacting forces. Theπ-π interaction between the carbonyl group of PVP and theπ-ring system of the substrate molecule seems to be crucial in deciding the binding affinities of the substrates
