Research Projects
Project title Effect of hydrodynamics in the USP apparatus 4 on dissolution/drug release rates
Summary The dissolution rates of model compounds of low- to intermediate-solubility were examined under conditions of no forced convection (natural convection) and at low flow rates in the USP 4 dissolution apparatus (Flow-through apparatus). The hydrodynamics of the flow-through apparatus were simulated using the CFD software, Fluent. The effect of low, time-dependent fluid velocities on dissolution is being examined, in particular with relevance to the estimated magnitude of fluid velocities in the GI tract.
