Comprehensive Rheological Characterization to Optimize Electrode Manufacturing

Summary Electrode manufacturing for lithium-ion batteries is a complex, multistep process that requires comprehensive material characterization to ensure quality and consistency in the final electrodes. Electrode processing involves combining active materials with binders and conductive additives to form a coating on the current collector, either as a slurry or dry coating. The mixing and coating…

Unlocking Stability: The Crucial Role of Thermal Analysis in Lyophilization Temperature Optimization

The method of drug delivery significantly influences the final stages of the manufacturing process. Currently, lyophilization—a widely adopted technique—enables drug developers to stabilize formulations and therapeutic molecules using a validated commercial approach. In this process, precise control of pressure and temperature within a lyophilizer facilitates the removal of liquids from formulations containing thermally sensitive or hydrolytically unstable active pharmaceutical ingredients or formulation components.

Understanding Biopolymer Behavior

The drive for consumers, brand owners, and corporations to become more eco-conscious in their purchases has led to an increased demand in sustainably sourced materials. Several industries have started initiatives to incorporate the use of recycled materials as well as bio-derived materials. In the case of bio-derived materials, industries using polymers have interest in biopolymers; however, these materials come with unique challenges.

Characterization Considerations when Sourcing PCR

Against the backdrop of a plastic waste crisis, the global demand for plastic is set to quadruple by 2060. This has driven a shift toward sustainability and away from linear use models of plastic production. Post-consumer resin (PCR) has emerged as a key player in circular economy initiatives, though ensuring the quality and performance of PCR requires several characterization considerations.
