    Keywords : Pharmaceutics; intrinsic solubility; solubility prediction; drug solubility; solid state; melting point; enthalpy of melting; entropy of melting; solvation; free energy of hydration; QSPR; multivariate analysis; PCA; PLS; Galenisk farmaci;

    Abstract : Aqueous solubility is a key parameter influencing the bioavailability of drugs and drug candidates. In this thesis computational models for the prediction of aqueous drug solubility were explored. READ MORE

  2. 2. Retrogradation Properties of Starch

    Author : José Silverio; Livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; surfactants; lipids; degree of polymerization DP ; isothermal microcalorimetry; differential scanning calorimetry DSC ; crystallinity; amylose; amylopectin; gelatinization; starch; retrogradation; temperature cycling; PCA; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik;

    Abstract : The main purpose of this thesis was to examine various factors influencing starch retrogradation. The reassociation events of starch, which are closely linked to the staling of bakery products, were mainly studied by thermal analysis. Some aspects of starch gelatinization are also included.
