How to Comprehensively Characterize Pharmaceuticals with Thermal Analysis

Part 2: How to Perform Polymorphism Studies by DSC

The possibility of various crystalline solids to exist in different structural forms (polymorphs or modifications) is an ongoing issue in pharmaceutical research and quality control. Polymorphism can affect the physical properties of a substance such as solubility, bioavailability, stability or melting point.

However, variations in the melting behavior can be used to detect and identify different polymorphic forms via their DSC profile. Additionally, it is possible to study also further transformations such as solid-solid transitions, glass transitions (of amorphous parts), etc., with DSC.

This webinar introduces the technique of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and shows how it can be applied to polymorphism studies based on a range of selected examples.
