Many pharmaceutical materials exhibit polymorphism, which means that, depending upon the given processing conditions, the crystalline form may exist in two or more states. The crystalline states or forms exhibit different levels of thermodynamic stabilities and an unstable form can melt at a temperature significantly less than the melting point of the thermodynamically stable form. Depending upon the conditions used to generate the crystalline form(s), the drug may exhibit one or more unstable, polymorphic crystalline states.
OIT is the abbreviation for oxidative induction time. It provides information about the oxidative stability of mainly polymer materials. The information is important because plastic parts age throughout their lifetime due to exposure to environmental elements such as heat, oxygen, light and radiation. Aging causes the degradation of the physical properties of the polymers and will lead to their failure.
This application note describes HyperDSC™ as a DSC analysis technique by PerkinElmer with fast scanning rates enabling increased sensitivity and high throughput for applications in polymers and pharmaceuticals.
One of the more commonly used thermoplastics is polypropylene because of its versatility. As with all thermoplastics, it is important to characterize the thermophysical properties of polypropylene, including melting temperature, percent crystallinity, crystallization when cooling from the melt, and the glass transition temperature, Tg. It is essential to analyze the thermophysical properties of the end product for quality assurance purposes. Thermal analysis provides an ideal means of characterizing the properties of polymers, including polypropylene. Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC) is a particularly useful technique for the characterization of polypropylene. This application note demonstrates how the high performance DSC from PerkinElmer® can readily detect the Tg of polypropylene.

StepScan DSC is a temperature modulated,DSC technique that operates in conjunction,with the Power Compensation Diamond,DSC from PerkinElmer. The approach,applies a series of short interval heating,and isothermal hold steps to cover the temperature range of interest. With the,StepScan™ DSC approach, two signals are obtained: the Thermodynamic Cp,signal represents the thermodynamic aspects of the material, while the Iso K,signal reflects the kinetic nature of the sample during heating. The following,basic equation mathematically describes the StepScan DSC approach:
There are many levels of integration of Thermal Analysis in the Semiconductor Packaging Industry. The encapsulation material used is typically an epoxy based compound (epoxy mold compound, under-fill epoxy, silver die attach epoxy, glob top epoxy, etc.)
The regulations of 21 CFR Part 11 cover overall system compliance and include administrative, procedural and technical elements. Software alone cannot be compliant without the development and implementation of the other elements. PerkinElmer’s Pyris™ Enhanced Security software for Thermal Analysis instruments provide features that, when coupled with appropriate policies and procedures, fulfill the requirements for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.
The differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) is a fundamental tool in thermal analysis. It can be used in many industries - from pharmaceuticals to polymers and from nanomaterials to food products. The information these instruments generate is used to understand amorphous and crystalline behavior, polymorph and eutectric transitions, curing and degree of cure, and many other material properties used to design, manufacture and test products.
