Thermal Analysis of Pharmaceuticals

Live Webinar

Thermal Analysis is often used to investigate pharmaceutical substances. Polymorphism, pseudo-polymorphism, phase diagrams, stability, and purity determination can all be measured by thermal analysis.
The four main techniques of thermal analysis, DSC, TGA, TMA, and DMA are ideal for characterizing such substances. The chief advantage is that properties can be measured as a function of the temperature or time over a wide temperature range, from –150 to 1600 °C.

In this Webinar, we will show how thermal analysis is used to investigate pharmaceutical substances. We will present some typical examples measured by DSC, TGA, TMA or DMA.

Thermal analysis is a standard technique for quality control and for research and can also be used for optimizing packaging or production processes. Just a small amount of sample is sufficient to measure important effects and properties such as melting, specific heat capacity, crystallization, polymorphism, content, glass transition, and purity for active ingredients and excipients.

In this Webinar, we will describe the four main thermal analysis techniques and present some typical applications.

The Webinar covers the following topics:

  • Introduction to thermal analysis
  • Relevant effects and properties
  • Instrumentation and applications
    – Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)
    – Thermogravimetry (TGA)
    – Thermomechanical Analysis (TMA)
    – Dynamic Mechanical Analysis (DMA)
  • Summary
