Solid province word picture
Rearrangement of the crystal construction or complete loss of the long-range order ( amorphization ) , or the formation of solid solutions or eutectics are among the common grounds that account for an increased disintegration rate of the APIs from solid scatterings ( Leuner,2000 ) . Furthermore, the theoretical account drug, Feldene, is known to exhibit polymorphism and is therefore susceptible to assorted solid stage transmutations during processing ( Vrecer, Sheth ) . Hence, to derive an penetration into the mechanism of improved disintegration rate of Feldene from solid scatterings, the solid-state belongingss of these systems were investigated by agencies of XRD, DSC, SEM and FTIR ( Sabiruddin Mirza, 2010 ) .
6.5.1 Differential Scanning Calorimetry
DSC thermograms were analyzed qualitatively by scrutiny of both peak temperature and the endothermal passage contour ( Sahin, 2007 ) . The thermogram of piroxicam pure drug is typical of crystalline anhydrous substances and is characterized by a crisp endothermal consequence demoing a crisp thaw extremum at 204.70C ( figure 5.9 ) . The DSC secret plan of solid scattering showed wide extremums at 2000C and 1430C. Since the DSC peak value of SD is off from the Feldene characteristic crystalline extremum value and there is disappearing of the specfic drug extremum it could be concluded that the drug in concluding preparation was less crystalline ( more formless ) and there is an interaction of the drug with the bearer and possible formation of an formless solid scattering.
6.5.2 X-Ray Diffraction ( Sahin, 2007 ) .
XRD analysis was used to measure the grade of crystallinity of the solid dispersions.Piroxicam ( PRX ) showed major extremums at 2? values of 14.500, 17.690, 27.390, 21.730, 27.790, 22.430,11.640,12.480, 16.690,26.750 ( figure 5.10, pattern A ) . The diffraction form of SM ( figure 5.10, form B ) indicates a typical formless character with less noticeable diffraction extremums. Analysis of XRD forms of the selected solid scattering ( figure 5.10, pattern D ) indicated that all the major extremums matching to piroxicam were disappeared which depicts the transition of crystalline signifier of drug to formless signifier which can be attributed to the formation of solid scattering.
The diffraction form of the composite formed should be clearly distinguishable from that of the superimposition of each of the constituents if a true formless composite is formed.Crystallinity was determined by comparing some representative peak highs in the diffraction forms of the binary systems with those of a mention.
The relationship used for the computation of crystallinity was the comparative grade of crystallinity ( RDC )
Where, I Sample is the peak tallness of the sample under probe and I mention is the peak tallness at the same angle for the mention with the highest strength. The pure drug extremum at 17.70 ( 2? ) was used for ciphering the RDC of solid scattering and physical mixture. The RDC values of the SD and PM were 0.210 and 0.295 severally ( table 5.8 ) . RDC analyzed shows that there is a lessening in grade of crystallinity which means betterment in the amorphousness of the sample.
6.5.3 Scaning Electron Microscopy ( Sahin,2007 and Topaloglu,1999 )
SEM images of the samples ( Figure 5.11 ) revealed that the atom size of piroxicam physical mixture is similar to that of the pure drug and possesses largely formless atoms of SM and some crystals of the drug.. There is a clear indicant of formation of an formless complex i.e. , solid scattering with reduced atom size which is may be attributed to the better solubility and disintegration profile of SD. The surface morphology of drug and SM besides changed from smooth to rough which indicates alteration of solid province.
6.5.4 Fourier Transform Infra -Red Spectroscopy ( Topaloglu,1999 )
The FTIR spectra of samples of Feldene are shown in figure 5.12. The pure drug showed legion characteristic high strength diffraction extremums showing the crystalline nature of the drug.The diffused extremums in solid scattering indicate the amorphization of drug.
Characteristic extremums attributable to the functional groups present in the molecule of drug were assigned to set up the individuality of the drug compared to solid scattering and physical mixture ( table 5.9 ) . FTIR spectra of Piroxicam reported characteristic extremums of C-H stretching, aromatic CH bending, C-S stretching, C=O stretching C=C, C=N pealing stretching, asymmetric S ( =O ) 2 stretching, symmetric S ( =O ) 2 stretching, secondary aminoalkane N-H stretching at 2930, 830, 773, 618, 1577, 1630, 1434, 1529, 1351, 1149 and 3338 wavenumbers severally ( table 5.7 ) . The extremum at 1577 which is attributed for C=O stretching disappeared in SD which indicates there might be transmutation of the drug in to formless province due to decarboxylation or new bond formation. Drug- excipient interactions play a important function with regard to the stableness and authority of the drug. FTIR techniques have been used to analyze the physical and chemical interaction between drug and excipients used. In the spectra of liquisolid compact optimized preparation ( Figure 5.15 ) , the extremums characteristic to the excipients were present at about same places, where as piroxicam extremums were besides present, but at a decreased strength of soaking up, bespeaking the caparison of the drug inside the bearer matrix. None of the spectra showed any extremums other than those assigned to PRX drug and excipients, which indicates the absence of any chiseled chemical interactions. Consequences showed that there is no difference between the IR forms of the optimized preparation of Feldene SD ODT and pure drug and all the excipients are compatible with the SD-SKM composite.
In the present probe, the consequence of % of Na amylum glycolate ( X1 ) and % of aerosil ( X2 ) on decomposition clip ( YDT ) and wetting clip ( YWT ) is studied utilizing 32 factorial design. The design revealed broad fluctuation ( table 5.10 ) . The informations clearly indicate that the dependent variables are strongly dependent on the independent variables. The fitted equation associating the response YDT, YWT to the transformed factor are shown in equations and. The value of correlativity coefficient ( table 5.11 ) indicates good tantrum. The multinomial equation can be used to pull a decision after sing the magnitude of coefficient and the mathematical mark it carries ( positive or negative ) . Consequences of ANOVA were depicted in table 5.12 and the predicted and measured values for optimized Feldene solid scattering tablets are shown in table 5.13. To show the consequence of % of Na amylum glycolate ( X1 ) and % of aerosil ( X2 ) on decomposition clip ( YDT ) and wetting clip ( YWT ) , the response surface secret plans ( Figures 5.13 and 5.14 ) were generated for the dependent variables YDT, YWT utilizing Design- Expert ® Software ( Stat- Ease Inc, Minneapolis ) .

The cumulative sum of drug permeated ( Q ) was plotted against clip
( table 5.17 and calculate 5.17 ) .The steady province i¬‚ux ( Jss ) calculated for the Pure drug, PM and SD were 0.00084, 0.00108 and 0.00152 mcg/cm2/hr respectively.The permeableness coefi¬?cient ( Kp ) of the drug through bowel was found to be 0.84, 1.08, 1.52 cm/hr for Pure drug, PM and SD respectively.The sweetening ratio ( ER ) was calculated by utilizing the undermentioned equation:
