PAMAM dendrimers form host-guest complexes with 8-methoxypsoralene (8-MOP) - the photosensitizer for PUVA therapy. The stoichiometry of complexes was studied by (1)H NMR spectroscopy in solution and by differential scanning calorimetry in neat mixtures containing 8-MOP and dendrimers of generations G2.5, G3, G3.5, and G4. The dendrimers showed(More)
The adsorption of several organic molecules on four carbon materials is studied by inverse gas solid chromatography at zero surface coverage. The specific retention volumes and the differential heats of adsorption (or standard enthalpies of adsorption) are used to study the influence of the porous structure and the chemical surface groups in the process.(More)
The thermal behaviors of α-D-glucose in the melting and glass transition regions were examined utilizing the calorimetric methods of standard differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), standard temperature-modulated differential scanning calorimetry (TMDSC), quasi-isothermal temperature-modulated differential scanning calorimetry (quasi-TMDSC), and(More)
The objective of this study was to evaluate the thermal behavior of crystalline and amorphous bisoprolol fumarate and its compatibility with amorphous valsartan. This pharmacologically relevant drug combination is a potential candidate for fixed-dose combination formulation. DSC and TMDSC were used to examine thermal behavior of bisoprolol fumarate. SSNMR(More)
Hydrogels based on N-isopropylacrylamide and sodium acrylate as ionic comonomer were synthesized by free radical polymerization in water using N,N'-methylenebisacrylamide as crosslinker and ammonium persulfate as initiator. The glass transition of dried copolymers poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPA) and poly(sodium acrylate) (SA) gels and demixing/mixing(More)
Thermal behavior of angiotensin II type 1 (AT1) receptor antagonist, Valsartan (VAL), was examined employing thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), standard differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and temperature-modulated differential scanning calorimetry (TMDSC). The stability of VAL was measured by TGA from 25 to 600°C. Decomposition of Valsartan starts(More)
Valsartan (VAL) is an antihypertensive drug marketed in an amorphous form. Amorphous materials can have different physicochemical properties depending on preparation method, thermal history, etc., but the nature of such materials is difficult to study by diffraction techniques. This study characterizes two different amorphous forms of valsartan (AR and AM)(More)
Water interacting with a polymer reveals a number of properties very different to bulk water. These interactions lead to the redistribution of hydrogen bonds in water. It results in modification of thermodynamic properties of water and the molecular dynamics of water. That kind of water is particularly well observable at temperatures below the freezing(More)
The phase behavior of linear poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPA), linear copolymer poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) and poly(sodium acrylate) (PNIPA-SA), and chemically cross-linked PNIPA in water has been determined by temperature modulated differential scanning calorimetry (TM-DSC). Experiments related to linear polymers (PNIPA and PNIPA-SA) indicated(More)
