Characterization of pharmaceuticals

METTLER TOLEDO's "Characterization of Pharmaceuticals" guide was designed to support thermal analysis (TA) users with real examples of the most relevant applications pertinent to the pharmaceutical industry. Specifically, the guide includes examples for how thermal analysis techniques – in particular DSC and TGA – can be used to investigate polymorphism and pseudopolymorphism, stability, interactions, purity and packaging materials.
