The Thermodynamic Characteristics of Sublimation of Fenamate Molecular Crystals

Russian Journal of Physical Chemistry (Impact Factor: 0.49). 01/2009; 83(11):1823-1826. DOI: 10.1134/S0036024409110028

ABSTRACT The temperature dependences of vapor pressure were determined by the transpiration method and the thermodynamic functions
of sublimation were calculated for six molecular crystals from the group of nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, for niflumic,
flufenamic, tolfenamic, mefenamic, and N-phenylanthranylic acids and diphenylamine. The influence of substituents on the enthalpies
of sublimation of compounds of this class was studied. A correlation was observed between the enthalpies of sublimation under
standard conditions and the temperatures of fusion.

    ABSTRACT: The thermal behaviour of Diclofenac was investigated using Differential Scanning Calorimetry, Hot Stage Microscopy, and Thermogravimetric Analysis. A discrepancy was observed between the melting point values recorded under dynamic flow of either dry nitrogen (180°C) or air (160°C). By means of High Performance Liquid Chromatography/Mass Spectrometric analyses, it has been possible to ascribe this difference in melting points to the formation of three degradation products as a result of intramolecular cyclization and condensation reactions during the heating process in an oxidative atmosphere.

    ABSTRACT: Mefenamic acid is a problematic drug in granulation, tableting, and dissolution due to its poor solubility, hydrophobicity, and tendency to stick to surfaces. In most cases, the specifications of a drug by the pharmacopoeia include identification and purity, but they do not describe the physicochemical drug properties precisely. To characterize the mefenamic acid particle size, surface area measurements, X-ray pattern, differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), wettability, crystal habit, and compression behavior of different batches from two manufacturers were investigated. Due to larger particle size and better wettability, mefenamic acid of Il Yang type was easier to handle in a granulation process. The compression behavior of both types was nearly the same, although particle size, crystal habit, and wettability were very different.

    ABSTRACT: Niflumic acid and morniflumate have been studied using X-ray diffraction, DTA, DSC and TG techniques. Their solubilities in various solvents at 296 K have also been determined. Neither niflumic acid nor morniflumate significantly decompose at temperatures less than 476 K. They melt at 476 K (ΔfusH = 38 kJ mol−1) and 351 K (ΔfusH = 38 kJ mol−1) respectively. The heat capacities for the solid and liquid phases of both compounds have been determined in the 100–500 K range. The sublimation pressure for niflumic acid may be neglected. The two species easily form glasses. Only niflumic acid recrystallizes at 298 K. All these data will be used in a future study of the phase diagram of these compounds.
