Aqueous Polymeric Coatings for Pharmaceutical Dosage Forms, by Linda A. Felton, James W. McGinity

By Linda A. Felton, James W. McGinity

This hugely praised publication offers an in-depth research of actual and chemical homes and purposes of aqueous-based polymeric coatings-covering covered dosage types, movie defects, and polymer characterization. New chapters on plastisizers and their functions in pharmaceutical coatings, adhesion of polymeric motion pictures to sturdy substrates, and the effect of pigments on homes of the polymeric coating structures are integrated during this 3rd version. also, this name presents new fabric on polymer interactions with medicinal drugs and excipients and actual getting older of polymeric movies.

Olefin Metathesis and Metathesis Polymerization, Second Edition

This booklet is a follow-up to Ivins Olefin Metathesis, (Academic Press, 1983). Bringing the traditional textual content within the box modern, this moment variation is due to the fast progress within the box, sparked by way of the invention of diverse well-defined steel carbene complexes which may act as very effective initiators of all kinds of olefin metathesis response, together with ring-closing metathesis of acyclic dienes, enynes, and dienynes; ring-opening metathesis polymerizationof cycloalkenes, acyclic diene metathesis polymerization; and polymerization of alkynes, in addition to easy olefin metathesis.

Polybenzoxazines : Chemistry and Properties

Polybenzoxazine is a unique classification of thermosetting fabric that belongs to the family members of addition-curable phenolic resins. it's a promising extreme temperature polymer in view of its remarkable thermal, actual, and mechanical houses which are invaluable for his or her program in aerospace and microelectronics industries.

Polymers and Electromagnetic Radiation: Fundamentals and Practical Applications

The 1st a part of the e-book offers with the interplay of polymers with non-ionizing radiation within the frequency-range from sub-terahertz over infrared radiation to seen and ultraviolet mild, whereas the second one half covers the interplay with ionizing radiation from the extraordinary ultraviolet to X-ray photons.

To distinguish among these mechanisms, the release rate was studied as a function of coating thickness, plasticizer content, and osmotic pressure in the dissolution medium.  21). Release as a function of plasticizer content was studied over the range of 12% to 24% DBS (Fig. 22). At 18% or 24% DBS, the release rates were virtually identical, about 50% in six hours. At 12% DBS, over 80% was released in the first hour, and these results were attributed to the presence of cracks in the coating. Release was also studied as a function of the osmotic pressure in the medium (Fig.

Pseudolatex Dispersions for Controlled Drug Delivery 31 Unanticipated pH-dependent release from aqueous ethylcellulose coatings (38,39) may be attributed to partial coalescence (3). Dressman et al. (40) demonstrated that heating pellets coated with ethylcellulose above the Tg of the film stabilized the release profile with respect to the pH of the test media. Additional studies were conducted (41) to identify changes in the film that would explain the stabilization of the release profile. Curing converted the film from a surface having a finite contact angle to a surface instantly wetted by the dissolution media.
