Investigations of physico-chemical properties in solid compounds
Summary:
A German spin-off active in organic solid-state chemistry provides extensive know-how in cross-linked analytical methods for active pharmaceutical ingredients, pigments, polymers and metal-organic compounds as well as for fine chemicals. They offer unique combined screening techniques for crystallization of cocrystals, polymorphs or salts from pharmaceutical ingredients or amorphous materials. Industrial partners are sought for technological and/or research cooperation agreement.
Description:
Technological properties like shelf-life, compacting, hygroscopicity, electrostatic charging, solubility and many more can be improved by a deeper knowledge of solid-state chemistry and crystallography of products.

A German university spin-off offers special expertise in screening techniques for crystallization of cocrystals, polymorphs or salts from active pharmaceutical ingredients and/or amorphous materials

In collaboration with experts in trace and micro analyses the company can accurately identify and, even more important, quantify the active ingredients and excipients in drug products. The solid-state form is likewise important to precisely describe the complex mixtures under investigation using the company´s own reference data, comparing them with a vast number of polymorphs and pseudopolymorphs.

Particle identification is crucial for many applications, particle size measured by scattering methods, membrane (core pore) filtration and imaging by macro- and micrographs, and several spectroscopic methods are able to evaluate fundamental information in research, development and manufacturing.

There exists an unbelievable complexity in solid-chem variation of one chemical compound resulting in various entities: polymorphs, salts, cocrystals, solvates, hydrates, solid solutions and mixed crystals up to a variety in the state of amorphous materials. They can be produced, modified, identified and distinguished which is necessary for any application. The approach to the new entities can be realized by rational design, (micro) screening, in silico-screening (computational predictions) and intermediates thereof.

The German University spin-off has special know-how and expertise, among others in European projects.

They are looking for partners from the field of pharma, food and chemical industry who require discovery-to-development transition of research projects. Industrial partners are sought for technological and/or research cooperation agreement.
Advantages and Innovations:
Main advantage is the possible combination of different measurement technologies. As they know no other laboratory can offer the same know-how in Europe especially in pharma related to crystallization of cocrystals.

Other advantages are:

· Modern powder diffractometer for Bragg-Brentano (multi-sample changer) and transmission geometry (capillary and foil)
· FT-IR (Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy) with transmission and diffuse reflectance sampling technique
· FT-NIR (Fourier transform near infrared spectroscopy) with transmission and diffuse reflectance sampling technique
· Raman station (especially for sampling tablets, crèmes, ointments and for measuring small samples in capillaries as well as for well plates for high throughput screening)
· DSC (differential scanning calorimetry) with cooling device down to -80 °C
· TGA (thermal gravimetric analysis) with automatic sample changer
· Glove box for work in defined atmosphere and flushing stream
· Karl-Fischer water determination (heated sample preparation by means of Karl-Fischer oven method)
· Optical microscopy, polarization microscopy (e.g. for determination of crystal habitués and size)
· Thermo microscope with Kofler and Linkam heating and cooling device
· Kofler heating bench (e.g. melt film preparation)
· Particle size determination (liquid and air dispersion)
· Impedance spectroscopy (testing stability of emulsions, suspensions and "nano-solutions")
· Solubility kinetics (Detection by conductivity or UV Spectroscopy)
· controlled humidity and temperature in chambers (electronic logging)
· Molecular modeling of the solid state (e.g. calculation of lattice energies)
· Modern laboratory equipment for crystallization, polymorph- and salt screening for rational design as well as high throughput
