In this study, a model drug, acetaminophen (APAP), was melt mixed with poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) using a Brabender mixer. APAP was found to recrystallize upon cooling to room temperature for all the drug loadings investigated. Higher drug loading leads to faster recrystallization rate. However, the morphology of the recrystallized drug crystals is(More)
Fine Dechlorane (DCR) particles with an average size of 12 Am were successfully encapsulated with poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) and poly(1-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP) polymers via in situ dispersion polymerization in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2). Adjusting the process parameters can control the coating thickness, surface morphology, and degree of(More)
Spontaneously formed unilamellar vesicles (ULV) composed of short- and long-chain phospholipids, dihexanoyl phosphorylcholine (DHPC) and dimyristoyl phosphorylcholine (DMPC), respectively, were doped with a negatively charged lipid, dimyristoyl phosphorylglycerol (DMPG), and studied with small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) and dynamic light scattering(More)
Drug particle size distribution has a profound impact to the content uniformity in low-dose solid drug products. We derived theoretically the skewness of potency distribution as a function of particle size distribution and target dose. It was demonstrated that both skewness and coefficient of variation diverge simultaneously with inverse square root of the(More)
We observe the spontaneous formation of path-dependent monodisperse and polydisperse phospholipid unilamellar vesicles (ULV) from two different equilibrium morphologies specifically, disklike micelles and extended lamellae, respectively. On heating beyond a temperature Tc, low temperature disklike micelles, or so-called bicelles, transform into lamellae.(More)
Most active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) exhibit particle size distributions with some degrees of asymmetry deviating from log-normality. A new log-skew-normal (L-S-N) distribution model is proposed for a systematic comparison of the asymmetry effect on content uniformity. The new model originated from the S-N model used by Azzalini gives a close(More)
Film coating of fine particles (5-20 microns) by polymers has a wide range of industrial applications, yet few techniques are commercially available that are environmentally friendly. In this study, four different techniques are considered with an ultimate goal of developing a reliable technique that is scaleable and is also environmentally friendly. Two of(More)
A novel method to synthesize single-wall carbon nanotube (SWNT)/poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) nanocomposite by in-situ polymerization in supercritical CO2 is presented. The surfaces of the SWNT bundles were first functionalized with amino ethyl methacrylate (AEMA) followed by co-polymerization with methyl methacrylate. Supercritical fluid enhanced the(More)
