Density mapping of roller-compacted ribbons using terahertz spectroscopy
Terahertz spectroscopy is well suited to measure and control the density (solid fraction, porosity) of roller-compacted ribbons. In this article, the authors describe the principles of terahertz analysis and give examples of how it can help with formulation development and scale-up and commercialization of the roller compaction process.
Eye on Excipients: Silica-based excipients
Silica-based excipients perform a variety of functions and are available in a variety of types, grades, and uses. This column—the first in a two-part series—summarizes the chemical and physical properties, reactivity, regulatory status, pharmacology, toxicology, and applications of calcium silicate and metal oxide silicas.
