Pharmaceutical materials research

Large-scale facilities opens the possibilities to study hanges as they happen, in situ and to charaterize the inhomogeneity of crystalline materials at the nano-scale. We study the mechanical and thermodynamic stability of polymorphic pharmaceutical materials using a range of techniques.

1. Combined in-situ micro-indentation and X-ray microscopy
2. In-situ pressure studies using synchrotron powder diffraction
3. In-situ solubility studies using PXRD and SAXS / WAXS
4. Thermodynamic stability studied by multi-temperature X-ray and neutron experiments

This project is realized through a collaboration between researchers from the Department of Chemistry, the Faculty of Science and the Department of Pharmaceutics at the Faculty of Health.
