The presence and quantity of impurities in pharmaceutical drugs can have a significant impact on their quality and safety. With the continuous pressure for increased industry productivity, there is urgent need for a systematic and comprehensive drug impurity profiling strategy. We report here our development of the fully automated Comprehensive Orthogonal(More)
A newly commercialized high-resolution ultrasonic spectrometer was evaluated for simultaneously measuring concentrations of a model excipient (hypromellose acetate succinate polymer, HPMCAS, CAS No. 71138-97-1) and a model drug (Fenofibrate, CAS No. 49562-28-9) in acetone solution. It was demonstrated that the measurements of both velocity and attenuation(More)
A reversed-phase liquid chromatographic method was developed and validated for the determination of the content of free acetic acid, free succinic acid, acetyl substituents, and succinoyl substituents in hydroxypropyl methylcellulose acetate succinate (HPMCAS; Chemical Abstracts Service Registry No. 71138-97-1) polymer. This single new method gave accurate(More)
Formaldehyde and formic acid are reactive impurities found in commonly used excipients and can be responsible for limiting drug product shelf-life. Described here is the use of activated carbon in drug product packaging to attenuate formaldehyde-induced and formic acid-induced drug degradation in tablets and cross-linking in hard gelatin capsules. Several(More)
An alternative liquid chromatographic (LC) method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of methoxyl and 2-hydroxypropoxyl substituents in hypromellose and hypromellose acetate succinate. The method uses the hydriodic acid cleavage reaction, catalyzed by adipic acid, of the substituted methoxyl and 2-hydroxypropoxyl groups, which are(More)
Molecular weight distribution is an important quality attribute for hypromellose acetate succinate (HPMCAS), a pharmaceutical excipient used in spray-dried dispersions. Our previous study showed that neither relative nor universal calibration method of size exclusion chromatography (SEC) works for HPMCAS polymers. We here report our effort to develop a SEC(More)
