In this paper we present a new protocol to determine faster the solubility of drugs into polymer matrixes. The originality of the method lies in the fact that the equilibrium saturated states are reached by demixing of supersaturated amorphous solid solutions and not by dissolution of crystalline drug into the amorphous polymer matrix as for usual methods.(More)
The thermodynamic, dynamic, and structural changes of crystalline griseofulvin upon high-energy ball milling at room temperature have been studied. The investigations have been performed by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), dielectric relaxation spectroscopy, and powder X-ray diffraction. The results indicate that this compound undergoes a direct(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine quantitatively the amorphous fraction in crystalline-amorphous powder mixtures of trehalose, in order to assess the ability of the (13)C NMR technique for quantitative amorphous characterization. The NMR method is described in detail and its accuracy is compared to that of the DSC technique. Amorphous trehalose was(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this work is to search for the existence of crystalline polymorphism for racemic Ibuprofen. METHODS The pharmaceutical material was studied by X-ray diffraction to identify crystalline phases, and by Differential Scanning Calorimetry to follow the thermodynamic evolution of these forms versus temperature. RESULTS Results presented(More)
Low-frequency Raman investigations were carried out upon pressurizing and grinding both crystalline forms of anhydrous caffeine at room temperature. These investigations have led to the detection of metastable states under stress. Upon moderated hydrostatic compression, only form I transform into a metastable state characterized by a Raman band-shape(More)
In this paper, we present an investigation of the polymorphism of griseofulvin. In addition to the only reported crystalline form (form I), two new polymorphic forms (II and III) have been identified and characterized by differential scanning calorimetry and powder X-ray diffraction. Reasons why these two polymorphs were isolated during the present study,(More)
Annealing of the quenched ibuprofen at 258 K yielded a new crystalline form, called phase II. Powder X-ray diffraction patterns of this phase II were recorded with a laboratory diffractometer equipped with an INEL G3000 goniometer and a curved position-sensitive detector CPS120. The starting structural model was found by a Monte-Carlo simulated annealing(More)
The possibility to amorphize anhydrous crystalline sugars, like lactose, trehalose and glucose, by mechanical milling was previously reported. We test here the possibility to amorphize the corresponding crystalline hydrates: lactose monohydrate, trehalose dihydrate and glucose monohydrate using fully identical milling procedures. The results show that only(More)
The high-temperature phase I of anhydrous caffeine was obtained by heating and annealing the purified commercial form II at 450 K. This phase I can be maintained at low temperature in a metastable state. A powder X-ray diffraction pattern was recorded at 278 K with a laboratory diffractometer equipped with an INEL curved position-sensitive detector CPS120.(More)
Amorphous S-flurbiprofen was obtained by the melt quench/cooling method. Dielectric measurements performed in the isochronal mode, conventional and temperature modulated differential scanning calorimetry (TMDSC) studies showed a glass transition, recrystallization, and melting. The different parameters characterizing the complex molecular dynamics of(More)
