The thermal stability of a substance is closely related to the shelf-life of pharmaceutical products. Here, the thermal stability of diclofenac sodium (anti-inflammatory) is determined by means of thermogravimetry.
When making sure pharmaceuticals comply to quality standards, there are four areas where Thermal Analysis can help to determine potential problems. This article will explain those Terms.
Thermal stability is a concept that is easy to conceive. But how to measure and quantify it? A fast and safe method for this is to use a thermobalance.
Thermal stability of materials measured fast and easy with a thermobalance coupled to a FT-IR System. Here, this method is applied to determine the thermal stability of Eudragit® L100-55.
