Diamictite

Diamictite

Diamictite is a type of sedimentary rock that consists of a wide range of lithified, nonsorted to poorly sorted, terrigenous sediment, i.e. sand or larger size particles that are suspended in a mud matrix. Although the term diamictite is often used for poorly sorted, lithified glacial deposits, this term is applied to this type of sedimentary rock of any origin. This term was coined in 1960 by Flint and others as a purely descriptive term for poorly sorted sedimentary rocks that contain a wide range of particle sizes and avoids any reference to a particular origin. Some Earth scientists restrict the usage of this term to poorly or non-sorted conglomerate or breccia, which consists of sparse, terrigenous gravel suspended in a either a mud or sand matrix. The unlithified equivalent of a diamictite is known either as a diamicton or diamict. Diamictites are often interpreted mistakenly as having an essentially glacial origin, but the most common origin of diamictites is deposition by submarine mass flows like turbidites and olistostromes in tectonically active areas, and they can be produced in a wide range of other geological formation conditions. Possible origins include:

Solubility

Solubility

Solubility is the property of a solid, liquid, or gaseous chemical substance called solute to dissolve in a solid, liquid, or gaseous solvent to form a homogeneous solution of the solute in the solvent. The solubility of a substance fundamentally depends on the physical and chemical properties of the used solute and solvent as well as on temperature, pressure and the pH of the solution. The extent of the solubility of a substance in a specific solvent is measured as the saturation concentration, where adding more solute does not increase the concentration of the solution and begin to precipitate the excess amount of solute. Most often, the solvent is a liquid, which can be a pure substance or a mixture. One may also speak of solid solution, but rarely of solution in a gas. The extent of solubility ranges widely, from infinitely soluble such as ethanol in water, to poorly soluble, such as silver chloride in water. The term insoluble is often applied to poorly or very poorly soluble compounds. Under certain conditions, the equilibrium solubility can be exceeded to give a so-called supersaturated solution, which is metastable.

Dispersol Technologies

Dispersol Technologies

DisperSol Technologies was founded in 2007 and evolved from a research collaboration with the College of Pharmacy at The University of Texas at Austin. The focus of this collaboration was to adapt and apply a unique plastics processing technology to pharmaceutical manufacturing. KinetiSol® emerged from this research as an innovative technology for the production of drug-polymer composite systems most notably for solubility/bioavailability enhancement of poorly water-soluble compounds.Since its inception, various applications for KinetiSol® have been established in the field of drug delivery. DisperSol holds numerous patents related to the technology and the equipment as well as several pending patents.DisperSol Technologies provides expertise in formulation and processing technologies for solubility/bioavailability enhancement of poorly water-soluble drug molecules. DisperSol possesses a unique portfolio of technologies for the production of solubility enhanced systems that includes DisperSol's proprietary KinetiSol™ technology. As a non-solvent, fusion-based process that minimizes thermal stress with highly efficient mixing, KinetiSol™ is uniquely positioned to generate amorphous solid dispersion systems with the most challenging APIs and with the broadest spectrum of pharmaceutical polymers. DisperSol has established a rapid KinetiSol™ feasibility program whereby the applicability of the process to any NCE can be determined rapidly and with relatively little API. Following a successful KinetiSol™ feasibility program, DisperSol is positioned to provide formulations development and manufacturing services to support pre-clinical and early-phase clinical studies. Toward the development of solubility enhanced formulations in general, DisperSol offers a variety of services including: formulation/process research and development for fusion and solvent-based processes, solid-state and chemical characterization, accelerated stability testing, in-vitro/in-vivo performance analysis, drug product manufacturing for pre-clinical and early-phase clinical studies, as well as formulation and process development consulting.
