A sparingly soluble model drug, phenytoin (5,5-diphenyl-hydantoin, denoted as PT), was incorporated during or after hydrolysis and polycondensation of tetra orthoethyl silicate (TEOS) to obtain silica-drug hybrids. We also compare the hybrids obtained by sol-gel process with those obtained by simple adsorption on nonporous silica particles. The initial rate of dissolution in water increases by a factor of 40 with respect to the intact PT by aging silica before drug addition. The IR results show that vC=O in the position 2 of PT and vN-H shift toward the higher wavenumber, showing that intermolecular hydrogen bonds between C=O and N-H are loosened or broken to form new hydrogen bonds between C=O in PT and Si-OH in silica. The dissolution rate of PT is determined by the degree of the breakage of hydrogen bonds between PT molecules and the intensity of the interaction between silica and PT.
