Active molecules (pesticides, drugs, nutrients, perfumes, detergents, proteins, peptides, etc.) when exposed to unfavourable conditions the molecules may become unstable, inactive and vary the physical or chemical properties. To avoid the above effects and to maintain the shelf life of the active molecules an inert supporting material is essential. The supporting material could be based on polymer or inorganic materials or combination of both. Depending on the suitability of the active molecules, the matrices and encapsulation in macro, micro and nano forms can be designed. In this workshop we describe the methods involved in preparation, characterization and analysis of the matrices and encapsulates. And also demonstrate methods to estimate the qualitative analysis of active molecules.
Instruments involved in these studies: HPLC, LC-MS, UV-visible spectrophotometer, FTIR spectroscopy, electrospinning unit, tablet dissolution test and optical microscope (instruments as mentioned will be used for characterization of active molecules).
