Thermal Analysis of Pharmaceuticals
This handbook describes applications of thermal analysis in the pharmaceutical industry with the help of nearly 50 examples. These range from the development of new pharmaceutical substances through to the quality control of commercial products.
Melting behavior, polymorphism, purity determination, moisture content, and the stability of active and inactive ingredients are some of the properties studied using DSC, TGA, EGA and TOA methods. The influence of measurement conditions and instrument calibration is also discussed.
