Krypton surface area and water sorption for common pharmaceutical excipients

The GAB (Guggenheim, Anderson, and de Boer) equation [1, 2, 3] is a widely referenced model that is often used for the characterization of pharmaceuticals, excipients, and food [4, 5, 6, 7].   Three excipients: lactose, gelatin, and talc were characterized in a single sorption instrument using krypton adsorption and BET modeling to determine the as-received surface area, water sorption, and then krypton sorption to determine the impact of water sorption on the BET surface area.   Continue reading

A simple method for combining pore size distributions calculated from gas adsorption isotherms with mercury intrusion porosimetry

MicroActive 2.0 and MicroActive for 3Flex include a powerful utility for including the pore size distribution from mercury porosimetry analyses with pore size distributions calculated from gas adsorption isotherms. This new import function allows users to rapidly view micro, meso, and macro pore size distributions in one easy to use application.
