Monitoring the Polymorphism of Paracetamol by Means of DSC

Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is the most commonly used medication for pain and fever in both the United States and Europe. However, it is not worth getting a headache when you think about its physicochemical properties. Thermal analysis, and especially differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), is of great help.

Studying Polymorphism by Means of DSC

From the chemical point of view, diamonds are just made of carbon. The phenomenon that chemical elements can occur in different forms within the same phase, i.e., in different structural modifications, is called allotropy. Due to the relationship between crystal modification and melting point, Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is ideally suited to discriminate between different polymorphic forms. A more general term for chemical compounds is polymorphism.

Reduce Scrap Production with Thermal Analysis

NETZSCH_Reduce_Scrap2

Bringing cost, material, production process and quality successfully together is one of the key objectives in the injection molding industry. If the production process is not correct or if the material does not adhere to the specified requirements, low quality and thus scrap production is the consequence. Ideally, all of these four factors should be able to be managed in order to avoid scrap production. Thermal analysis methods offer valued approaches.

A Simple Way to Evaluate and Manage Material Data

Knowledge of the thermal properties of the material is crucial for producing thermoplastic parts. However, materials are not always delivered with sufficient information on all properties. Thermal analysis instruments are suitable to find the most important parameters by yourself. But the instrument is only the first step. The software is equally important. Here are two examples how Proteus® can help achieve faster results.
