Research: Phase transformations, physical and chemical stability, water-solid interactions, amorphous systems and solid dispersions
In general, our research interests are directed towards an improved molecular level understanding of pharmaceutical materials and formulations through the use of high resolution analytical techniques with an emphasis on vibrational spectroscopy. Of particular interest are water-solid interactions and disordered systems, especially amorphous solid dispersions. Vibrational spectroscopy, in conjunction with other techniques such as X-ray diffraction and calorimetry, is used to provide information about the physical state of the substance e.g. crystalline or amorphous, the response of the material to changes in temperature and relative humidity and the nature of drug-drug, drug-excipient and drug-water interactions. Where possible, we use in situ monitoring techniques to improve the connectivity of the analysis technique to the process of interest.
