Forced Degradation

  • Share:

Pharmaceutical companies need to have stability indicating methods in place to be able to detect products of drug instability.

Here are five major degradation pathways:

Acid Hydrolysis

Damage from an acid can cause loss of structural components necessary to the molecule

Base Hydrolysis

Damage from a base can cause loss of structural components necessary to the molecule

Oxidative Degradation

Change in number or types of chemical bonds

Exposure to Heat

Exposure to heat can cause a molecule to lose necessary critical functional groups

Exposure to Light

Light sensitivity can cause molecule to fall apart and become ineffective or toxic
