Thermal Analysis of Pharmaceuticals, 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. More ⇒
