PRE FORMULATION STUDY:
Pre formulation testing was an investigation of physical and chemical properties of a drug substance alone and when combined with excipients. It was the first step in the rational development of dosage forms. Class: -Pre formulation study can divide into two subclasses: API characterization, Compatibility study
Active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) characterization:-
Organoleptic evaluation:-These are preliminary characteristics of any substance which is useful in identification of specific material. Following physical properties of API were studied.
a) Color
b) Odour
c) Taste
Physical Appearance The appearance of the API was done by visual observation
Solubility Studies Solubility profiles of Atorvastatin were done by solubility equilibrium method. It is done by stirring an excess of drug in the solvents water, methanol, ethanol isopropyl alcohol for a prolonged period until equilibrium is reached. It is also done in various concentrations of pH buffers.

The following analytical method is reported for the estimation of Atorvastatin.
1. UV Spectroscopy In the present investigation UV Spectrophotometer method was used for the estimation of Atorvastatin.
Construction of calibration curve for Atorvastatin.
Preparation of stock solution:
Aqueous solutions of phosphate buffer of pH 6.8 were prepared as per USP25. Standard drug solution was prepared (1mg/ml) in Phosphate Buffer 6.8. The λmax was determined in respective solvent and found to be 272nm.
Drug (100mg) was dissolved in10ml of Phosphate Buffer6.8 and the total volume was brought to 100 ml with Phosphate Buffer 6.8 to obtain stock solution .Stock solution was further diluted to obtain 5-30 μg/ml with Phosphate Buffer6.8. Standard solutions of Atorvastatin (10μg/ml) in Phosphate buffer 6.8 were scanned in the 200-400 nm range to determine the maximum absorbance

    In-vitro drug release study The prepared econazole nitrate nanoparticles obtained from the nano-spray dryer were suspended in isotonic buffer pH 7.4 and were then tested for drug release by dialysis method in isotonic buffer with pH of 7.4. Nanoparticles (equivalent to 2.5 mg of drug) were instilled in dialysis bag containing 1 ml isotonic buffer with pH value of 7.4 and was secured by two clamps at each end. The dialysis bag was completely soaked in a vessel containing 100 ml of release medium with shaking rate of 200 stroke per min and maintaining at 34oC (incubator shaker IKA KS 4000, Germany). The vessel was closed to avoid evaporation of the release medium. Samples were taken at certain time intervals.…

    Supernatant was taken for further analysis. 3.7.2.2 Calibration Plot A stock solution of Raloxifene Hydrochloride was prepared in methanol to yield final concentration of 1000µg/mL. A series of standard solutions of concentrations in the range of 100-500µg/mL were obtained by further dilution of the aliquots with methanol. All the solutions were stored at -20oC and were equilibrated to room temperature prior to use. To prepare the standard calibration samples, 50µL of standard solution were added to 100µL of liver homogenate.…

    The carbodimide chemistry reaction involves first the activation of the carboxyl group using 1-Ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)carbodiimide EDC and then a covalent reaction between free amino group and activated carboxyl group in PEG-EGFR and PF0-HNC respectively [42]. In brief, 10 mg of Methoxy-PEG-COOH and 5 times molar excess of the EDC was dissolved in 5 ml 0.1 M MES buffer (pH 4 ~ 5) under continuous stirring for 2 hours. The unreacted EDC was removed by performing dialysis with dialysis membrane (MW cut off 1000). Later, 5 mg of EGFR peptide was added to the above activated Methoxy-PEG-COOH to form Methoxy-PEG-EGFR. To attain conjugation of PEG-EGFR peptide on PF0-HNC, first the carboxyl group located on PEG-EGFR peptide was activated by the addition of 20% molar excess of N-hydroxysulfo-succinimide (NHS) and EDC followed by the addition of this carboxyl activated peptide to PF0-HNC to form PF0-HNC-E.…
