When a crystalline substance – such as an active pharmaceutical ingredient or an excipient – comes into contact with water, various types of interactions are possible. For the design of a dehydration process, it is therefore important to know the thermal properties of the particular sample. Thermogravimetric analysis in combination with kinetic evaluation helps determine this data and significantly reduce the time to develop a suitable temperature program.
Learn here how to quickly determine the water content of magnesium stearate, one of the most widely used pharmaceutical excipients.
The shelf-life of a pharmaceutical product concerning thermal stability can be predicted using thermogravimetry measurements and the software Kinetics Neo.
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.
Carbon black is a virtually indispensable product for the polymer industry, whether in rubber mixtures as a strengthener, pigment for plastics, conductive agent or UV stabilizer, depending on the occurrence, particle size and structure. Therefore, it is crucial to evaluate and confirm its level and precise dispersion in order to avoid adverse effects on the final material costs and mechanical properties
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.
In this Video our Business Field Manager Alexander Frenzl talked about the “Digital Transformation” in the ceramics industry with Susan Sutton from BNP Media for Ceramic Industry Magazine!
