Separation Science in Drug Development, Part II: High-Throughput Characterization
August 01, 2015
Perspectives in Modern HPLC
This installment provides an overview of high-throughput characterization techniques of drug leads to support small molecule drug discovery programs in a pharmaceutical company. A myriad of analytical chemistry techniques including separation science methodologies are used to confirm the structures and identities, quantitating the concentrations of stock solutions, and measuring key physicochemical properties of the new chemical entities (NCE). A case study is used here to illustrate the details of these applications in high-throughput characterization.
