Crystallography: A Core Science?

29 October 2014 | By

Crystallography is the science underpinning crystallisation, as well as a basic understanding of atomic arrangement within solids and their resulting structures. The United Nations announced that 2014 would be the International Year of Crystallography (IYCr2014). IYCr2014 commemorates the 100th anniversary of X-ray diffraction according to Bragg’s Law (celebrated by the…

NMR spectroscopy: a superior tool for quality control of pharmaceutical products

28 October 2014 | By Torgny Rundlöf, Pharmaceutical Evaluator, Medical Products Agency, Sweden

Pharmaceutical products have to be of high quality with respect to a number of predefined attributes, e.g. identity and strength with respect to the active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) and the presence and levels of impurities. At least for smaller compounds, such quality control often involves chromatographic methods. The examples given…

Pharmaceutical salts of small molecule drugs: opportunities and challenges

28 October 2014 | By Axel Becker, Scientist, Merck KGaA

Over the past decades, pharmaceutical drug development has undergone some significant changes, a prominent example for this being the emergence of biomolecular drugs (New Biological Entities, NBEs) such as antibodies and peptides. However, classical small molecule drugs (New Chemical Entities, NCEs) are far from being a dying species, and in…
