    Spectroscopic Technique Targets Drug Porosity

    Article obtained from BioPhotonics RSS Feed.

    In the pharmaceutical field, porosity is an important trait in helping to measure the effectiveness of tablet quality. Thanks to modern spectroscopic techniques, manufacturers are getting the characteristics they’re looking for. Porosity, in addition to other properties such as surface area, particle size, and solubility, is a primary contributing factor in the dissolution rate of tablets. Through this attribute, producers and researchers are able to obtain an initial indication of liquid absorption and, therefore, dissolution properties of pharmaceutical tablets.

    Generally speaking, the higher the porosity, the faster the absorption of liquid into a matrix or composite material1. The absorption of liquid into a tablet…
