Active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) can be prepared in many different solid forms and phases that affect their physicochemical properties and suitability for oral dosage forms. The development and commercialization of dosage forms require analytical techniques that can determine and quantify the API phase in the final drug product. 13C solid-state NMR (SSNMR) spectroscopy is widely employed to characterize pure and formulated solid APIs; however, 13C SSNMR experiments on dosage forms with low API loading are often challenging due to low sensitivity and interference from excipients. Here, fast MAS 1H SSNMR experiments are shown to be applicable for the rapid characterization of low drug load formulations. Diagnostic 1H SSNMR spectra of APIs within tablets are obtained by using combinations of frequency-selective saturation and excitation pulses, 2D experiments and 1H spin diffusion periods. Selective saturation pulses efficiently suppress the broad 1H SSNMR signals from the most commonly encountered excipients such as lactose and cellulose, allowing observation of high-frequency API 1H NMR signals. 1H SSNMR provides a one to three orders of magnitude reduction in experiment time compared to standard 13C SSNMR experiments, enabling diagnostic SSNMR spectra of dilute APIs within tablets to be obtained within a few minutes. The 1H SSNMR spectra can be used for quantification provided calibrations are performed on a standard sample with known API loading.

Abnormally rapid heartbeats caused by reentry of atrial impulse into the dual (fast and slow) pathways of ATRIOVENTRICULAR NODE. The common type involves a blocked atrial impulse in the slow pathway which reenters the fast pathway in a retrograde direction and simultaneously conducts to the atria and the ventricles leading to rapid HEART RATE of 150-250 beats per minute.

The quality or state of being wettable or the degree to which something can be wet. This is also the ability of any solid surface to be wetted when in contact with a liquid whose surface tension is reduced so that the liquid spreads over the surface of the solid.
Food and dietary formulations including elemental (chemically defined formula) diets, synthetic and semisynthetic diets, space diets, weight-reduction formulas, tube-feeding diets, complete liquid diets, and supplemental liquid and solid diets.
Lasers which use a solid, as opposed to a liquid or gas, as the lasing medium. Common materials used are crystals, such as YAG (YTTRIUM aluminum garnet); alexandrite; and CORUNDUM, doped with a rare earth element such as a NEODYMIUM; ERBIUM; or HOLMIUM. The output is sometimes additionally modified by addition of non-linear optical materials such as potassium titanyl phosphate crystal, which for example is used with neodymium YAG lasers to convert the output light to the visible range.
