Synthesis of Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) for the Purpose of Encapsulating and Releasing Tuberculosis Drugs

Drug delivery methods can be demanding on the patient and require them to administer drugs on their own. This is demanding and tedious on the individual. Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs) are being experimented with as another alternative to drug delivery. With these COFs, the goal is to create a novel drug delivery mechanism that will absorb and release drugs at a targeted site. The goal is to create a COF that will encapsulate and release the drug — specifically a drug for tuberculosis (TB) — in a controlled manner over a prolonged period of time.
