Quality Control Methodologies for Pharmaceutical Counterions

Quantitative determination of the counterions associated with pharmaceutical salts is a mandatory requirement for quality control. While ion chromatography (IC) is the standard technique in most laboratories, capable of delivering excellent sensitivity, specificity and flexibility, there are other simpler and quicker analytical methodologies that may should be considered for this quality control application.

Rapid, Efficient Quantification of Water in Solvents and Solvents in Water Using an Ionic Liquid–Based GC Column

Developing versatile, rapid, and accurate analytical techniques for the detection and quantification of water in a variety of materials remains an important and ubiquitous analytical problem. This article describes an effective and sensitive ionic liquid (IL)-based capillary gas chromatography (GC) method with thermal conductivity detection (TCD) to determine the water content in liquid samples.
