PSSRC Rheology Workshop (July 5, 2016)

During Tuesday (July 5) and in connection to the PSSRC annual meeting 2016 (July 6-8), a one-day workshop in rheology will be organized at the UCPH Department of Pharmacy. The aim is to introduce the basic concepts, as well as to discuss rheology of applications relevant to the PSSRC members. Examples are covering solution and suspension state rheology, as well as powder rheology. Part of the workshop will be hands-on session in the rheology lab. Participation is free of charge but a separate, binding registration is mandatory for the administrative purposes. The exact program and content will be updated on…

The PSSRC 2016 aims at providing a forum for the dissemination of information about research advancement in the field of solid state pharmaceutics, and to identify new challenging issues of…
A new method for measuring of molecular mobility in glassy materials has been developed using terahertz spectroscopy. The absorption level of amorphous drugs at terahertz frequencies below Tg correlates with the stability of the drug as an amorphous solid. The molecular mobility responsible for the glass crystallisation significantly decreases at around a universal value of 0.67 Tg. This explains why the commonly used rules of thumb for glasses to remain stable below 0.8 Tg or Tg – 20 K do not work reliably. These results reveal a unique and completely novel opportunity to predict and test the stability of amorphous…
