CONCLUSION: The design results revealed that an optimum exposure of 1:2 of isopropanol: formaldehyde vapours for sixty minutes resulted in desired release of second pulse of dose after a predetermined lag time of 5 hours as desired. '3Cap' system was successful in achieving floating and pulsed release of hypertensive drug opening a 'new lease of life' to the existing drug molecule.
