Chemical kinetics equations
Rate= +/- dC/dT Concentration over time
Reaction rates depend on
Order of the reaction
Sum of the exponents
What are the greatest interest of reactions?
Zero, first and second (mainly zero and first)
In First order Rate is proportional to
For first order reaction, plot of integrated Ln C vs T... (lnC=lnCo-K1t)the slope is what?
Example of pseudo first order degradation
Pseudo first order equation
Zero Order equation
Zero order graph equation
- Co is intercept
- slope is ko
To maintain constant concentration for zero order
There is a resevoir of drug to replac the drug that is lost to decomposition
Effects of pH on degradation rate
Protons and hydroxyl ions can catalyze reactions (Ester hydrolysis)
Max stability is located where at the graph?
Where log k is at its lowest.
Temperature affect on degradation rates.... 10 Celcius increase causes
2-5 fold decay rate increase
Arrhenius used to predict
