Solubilities and solid state properties of the sodium salts of drugs

Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences
J T Rubino


The solubilities in water of a number of sodium salts of weakly acidic drugs were determined. The compounds examined included barbiturates, sulfonamides, and hydantoins. When the logarithm of the aqueous solubilities of the salts were plotted against their melting points, an inverse relationship was observed; however, a good correlation was not immediately apparent. Further studies were conducted on the solid phases of the drugs after equilibration with water, using calorimetric, spectrophotometric, and gravimetric methods. In many cases, hydrate formation was evident and, for some compounds, the stoichiometric amount of water in the crystal was different before and after equilibration with water. Multivariate analysis of the data indicated that the logarithms of the molar solubilities were inversely related to both the melting points and the stoichiometric amounts of water in the crystal hydrates, but were unrelated to the polarity of the corresponding acid forms of the drugs. Therefore, for the sodium salts of these drugs, the solubility is primarily controlled by the properties of the solid phase which exists in equilibrium with the solution phase.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.
