Silicones for pharmaceutical applications - Analytical capabilities at Solvias
Silicones are used in pharmaceutical applications as part of formulations, as well as during manufacturing and in packaging. The term ‘silicones’ encompasses a large number of compounds based on polydialkylsiloxanes. The most common are trimethylsilyloxy-terminated polydimethylsiloxanes.
Their applications include use as:
- active ingredients
- excipients in topical formulations
- excipients in controlled release devices
- siliconized parenteral packaging components
- manufacturing and packaging materials
