Cold crystallization has a dual nature
Warsaw, Poland (SPX) Jul 24, 2015
In some vitrous substances, when heated, not one, but two physical mechanisms are reponsible for crystallization, as scientists working at the Insitiute of Nuclear Physics in Krakow, Poland, have discovered. The first-time use of numerical image processing to assess the degree of crystallization of liquid crystals led to the surprising results. Organic substances present in pharmaceutical products should in general be in a glassy form. It may happen, though, that under long-term storage the compou ... read more
