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

Read all about analytical testing of silicones in pharmaceutical applications in the white paper: Silicones for pharmaceutical applications.
