Product Stability: Prognostication, Placement, Parameters—Part II
Lloyd Kennon

ABSTRACT

Synopsis

Chemical kinetics provides the basic principles which can help study of the deterioration of pharmaceutical and cosmetic products. Principles of kinetics, which could be used to predict long-term stability of finished formulations, are reviewed, and techniques are described which can be used in programming stability studies. Finally, those properties of emulsions, suspensions, and solids are discussed which are amenable to measurement and can be used as parameters for establishing and predicting deterioration of finished consumer products.
