Surface characterization of solid dispersions

Background

Solid dispersions are an intensively investigated enabling technology to formulate poorly soluble drugs. Many contributions already studied their higher solubility and resulting dissolution rate as well as the challenges at the level of physical stability due to their high intrinsic energy. Whereas the vast majority of these studies focus on the bulk characteristics of the samples, we are convinced that the (often distinct) properties of the sample surface should not be overlooked.
