The purpose of this study was to demonstrate the usefulness and broad-applicability of a simple disintegration test method for orally disintegrating tablets (ODT). Eight types of commercial famotidine 20 mg orally disintegrating tablets with different physical properties (formulation, manufacturing method, tablet weight, shape, diameter, thickness, etc.),(More)
There have been few reports wherein drug migration from the interior to the surface of a tablet has been analyzed quantitatively until now. In this paper, we propose a novel, rapid, quantitative analysis of drug migration in tablets using laser induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). To evaluate drug migration, model tablets containing nicardipine(More)
Chlorella pyrenoidosa Chick reduced ethyl 2-methyl 3-oxobutanoate to the corresponding alcohols with the diastereomer (anti/syn) ratio of 53/47. The enantiomer excesses of anti-(2S, 3S)- and syn-(2S, 3R)-hydroxy esters were 89 and > 99ee% respectively. C. vulgaris and C. regularis afforded predominantly the syn-isomer, contrary to C. pyrenoidosa. The(More)
Seven fungi, which are found to reduce ethyl 3-oxobutanoate in high yields, were tested for their reducing ability for ethyl 2-methyl 3-oxobutanoate. We obtained some interesting findings. In particular, Penicillium purpurogenum reduced ethyl 2-methyl 3-oxobutanoate to the corresponding alcohols with the diastereomer (anti/syn) ratio of 93/7 with the(More)
The permeation of nitrophenols through epidermal cells from newborn rat skin cultured on type IV collagen-coated Millipore filters was studied under various conditions. The order of permeation through the cultured skin cells was found to be p- greater than m- greater than o-nitrophenol at both 10 and 37 degrees C. This order was the same as that of their(More)
