  14. What is preformulation?
    • process of optimizing a drug through the determination of its physical and chemical properties
    • including: the determination of any possible interactions in the final form
  15. What three properties need to be evaluated in preformulation studies?
    • chemical
    • physical
    • biological
  16. What are the chemical properties that need to be studied in preformulation?
    • structure
    • form
    • purity
    • reactivity
  17. What physical features need to be studied in preformulation?
    • microscopic and macroscopic properties
    • Drug and drug product stability
    • General : pKa, solubility, dissolution, polymorphism, partition coefficient
  18. What type of property is studied when you evaluate the pKa, partition coefficient, solubility, dissolution, and polymorphism of a drug product?
    Physical properties
  19. What biologic properties are studied during preformulation?
    • Ability to get to the site of action
    • Ability to elicit a response
  20. What are the five Macroscopic properties listed in class?
    • Color
    • Odor
    • Appearance
    • Density
    • Flow properties
  21. Color, odor, appearance, flow properties and density are what type of property?
  22. What are the three microscopic properties discussed in class?
    • Crystal habit
    • Particle size
    • Size distribution
  23. What type of property are: size distribution, particle size, and crystal habit?

  24. What USP chapter describes federal obligations for Macroscopic properties?
  25. What type of densities measurements exist?
    • True density
    • Bulk density
    • Tapped density
  26. What is true density?
    Density of the actual solid material
  27. What is bulk density?
    The mass of a powder divided by the volume (includes spaces between particles)
  28. What is the tapped density?
    Mass divided by the volume obtained by tapping a cylinder repeatedly (compressing the spaces between the particles)
  29. How is the true density obtained?
    • For Non-porous material = volume is obtained by displacement in an insoluble liquid
    • For porous material = volume is measured using a helium densitometer
  30. What would you use a helium densiometer for?
    To measure the volume of a porous substance to obtain the true density
  31. What type of density is obtained by dividing the bulk mass by the bulk volume (volume is inclusive of the spaces between particles)?
    Bulk density
  32. What is the angle of repose?
    • Image Upload
    • The angle of the side of a pile of drug powder/granule
    • The steepest angle of the dip of the slope relative to the horizonal
  33. What is the equation for the angle of respose?
    • tan (angle of repose) = us
    • us = coeff. of static friction
  34. What is the range of angles or repose?
    0-90 degrees
