Ionic liquid: a new direction for drug development
Ionic liquid: a new direction for drug development
In drug development and production, solid active pharmaceutical ingredients, which are usually made into powders or tablets, are a preferred choice compared with liquid active pharmaceutical ingredients. If solid active ingredients are to be finally marketed, the issue of solubility must be solved. 40-70% of drug development failures are due to poor solubility. This is because drugs of poor solubility cannot be well-absorbed by the body.   Ionic liquids (alfa-chemistry.com/products/ionic-liquids-148.htm), as an exciting class of compounds that can circumvent the above problems, are being ignored. Half of the drugs currently on the market are salts linked together by ionic bonds. Compared with the solid form, the salt that is liquid at room temperature or body temperature has better solubility, absorption and stability. Ionic liquids can also deliver two or more active ingredients at once. For example, by combining the active ions of the painkiller procaine with non-steroidal

Analysis of The Association Between Cell Immortalization and Cancer
Cell immortalization is a necessary step for cancer development. Scientists believe that the main reason is to turn on an enzyme-telomerase-to extend chromosomal telomeres and prevent normal cell death. A new study shows that turning on telomerase is not a one-step process. In melanoma and possibly other cancers, mutations increase telomerase slightly, allowing cells to survive long enough to make other changes that upregulate telomerase. The key to immortality is an enzyme called telomerase, which keeps the chromosomes in cells that divide frequently. The enzyme lengthens the caps or telomeres at the ends of chromosomes, which are worn away during each cell division. When the telomeres are too short, the ends stick to each other, causing severe damage during cell division and in most cases killing the cell. Since telomeres become shorter as cells age, scientists believe that cancer cells that never age will be immortalized by turning on the production of telomerase

The Effects of Excipients on Pharmaceutical Preparation
The Effects of Excipients on Pharmaceutical Preparation
Excipients are very important for pharmaceutical preparations. It can be said that without excipients, there will be no pharmaceutical preparations, let alone different pharmaceutical dosage forms such as powders, granules, tablets, oral liquids or injections. When the drug and the appropriate excipients are combined into a specific dosage form, the drug would become safer, more stable and more convenient to use. Divided doses are easier to be accepted by the body. However, in addition to the above-mentioned effects, excipients of the drug are also one of the important factors that determine the effect of the preparation and how safe it is. What impacts will different excipients exert on the quality of pharmaceutical preparations? First, let us look at the excipients used in the production of dextran and β-cyclodextrin oligomers. This type of pharmaceutical preparations have a common feature, that is, after oral absorption, the drug will enter the body`s circulation.

Spetec Peristaltic Pumps: How It Works
Individual, extremely reliable and offering outstanding precision for chemical analyses and process technology Problem: The basic purpose of a peristaltic pump is to move fluids from A to B. This is not enough for manufacturers of analysis equipment and manufacturer of sensitive devices. Alongside the technical characteristics such as pulsation, accuracy and stability, they want their pumps to have their own attractive, individual appearance. Solution: SPETEC has been designing and building peristaltic pumps for an enormous range of applications. It also manufactures the required tubing, which must be as inert as possible in contact with solvents or acids and should have a long service life. Applications in these fields demand precision metering, an extremely stable technical process flow and, depending on the intended use, the lowest possible level of pulsation. These are the criteria underpinning the design of the two laboratory pump variants Perimax12 and Perimax16, which differ only in the number of rollers (12/16) in the pump head and the continuously adjustable flow rates

Additives in the textile industry A dormant danger?
Additives in the textile industry
A dormant danger? Additives in the textile industry improve product properties or simplify processing. During the manufacture of textile fibres and the production of the garments made from the fibres, they pass through a great number of processing steps in which a large number of chemicals are also used. Ideally, only the finishing chemicals, as well as the dyes, remain in the final product, but other chemicals that can have harmful effects on health have also been detected in textile pieces. Fritsch offers the possibility to grind textiles and protective masks with the Universal Cutting Mill Pulverisette 19 and thus prepare them for further analysis. Processing of textiles The task was to comminute textiles and FFP2 protective masks with the Pulverisette 19. In the first step, the textiles were manually pre-shredded to a size of approx. 7 x 8 cm.
