This work presents analytical formulas derived for evaluating vapor transport of a volatile solvent for an isolated multicomponent droplet in a quiescent environment, based on quasi-steady-state approximation. Among multiple solvent components, only one component is considered to be much more volatile than the rest such that other components are assumed to be nonvolatile, remaining unchanged in the droplet during the process of (single-component) volatile solvent evaporation or condensation…

Study of the Hygroscopic Properties of Selected Pharmaceutical Aerosols Using Single Particle Levitation

It is expected that some aerosolized drugs of low solubility may experience supersaturation before they enter the human body and this could exert a significant influence both on particle loss before inhalation and on the deposition of the drugs in the lungs.
