Tapping molecular wilderness : drugs from chemistry--biology--biodiversity interface

This publication is for readers with a few history in technology, in regards to the look for medicines, ranging from molecular variety in nature or molecular wasteland. Drug molecules can be utilized as such, or as beginning issues for more advantageous medications acquired from the interface of chemistry and biology. every now and then, the basic molecular good points for drug houses from usual molecules can be pointed out and changed to greater ones.

2) Solution No. Rel. 3 Analytical methods for povidone Table 29. 5 Stability of the molecular weight in liquid dosage forms after sterilization with gamma radiation Unlike the powders, aqueous solutions of povidone are sensitive to gamma radiation. This was checked with povidone K 17 and povidone K 30. Table 29 presents the results of molecular weight measurements on povidone K 17 that was exposed, as the 10% aqueous solution, to radiation of different intensities. A clear increase in the average molecular weight and a broadening of the molecular weight distribution were found.

The formation of peroxides, free vinylpyrrolidone or turbity is no problem and the influence of the pH is negligible. 2 Product properties Table 26. Eur. Eur. 0 FTU (= Formazine Turbity Unit) Similar results were found with respective solutions of the low-molecular povidone Kollidon® 17 PF. If sodium bisulfite is to be used as an antioxidant in parenteral preparations, the legal situation in the respective country must be considered. 4 Stability of the molecular weight in liquid dosage forms after thermal sterilization and storage As the molecular weight determines many of the properties of povidone that affect its use, it is worth knowing that it is not changed by storage or heating.

5 g/l are taken, the complexed proportion of salicylic acid is less than 1% and can therefore be ignored. As all the pharmaceutically active substances, apart from tannin, that have been checked to date have shown complexation constants of less than 10 l/mol, the above example for salicylic acid can be applied to almost all drugs. Complexation is widely used in pharmaceutical technology (Table 21). 5 1 2 5 10 20 50 100 Povidone concentration, g/l Fig. 22.
