The thermal parameters of ofloxacin, excipients and their binary mixture are listed in Table 4, in the manner such that the endothermal features if retained in binary mixtures (both of drug or diluent) are placed below the thermal feature of diluent and drug respectively.
For the measurements with an isothermal holding step at 60[degrees]C, two endothermal peaks can be detected.
As regard the calorimetric curves of PBSPBDG120, PBSPBDG180, and pure PBDG, only an intense endothermal baseline deviation associated with the glass transition is observed.
In E4E/THPA, the exothermic pick was subtracted by endothermal effect of E4E melting and it was hard to deal with the curing kinetics using non-isothermal data.
From the DSC figure, two endothermal peaks were observed; corresponding temperatures are 136 and 249 [degrees]C, respectively.
The inflection point in specific heat capacity and the peak value of the endothermal part of the DSC curves were taken as, glass transition temperature ([T.
Also, the intensity of the endothermal melting peak is increased considerably and the melting point shifts to a slightly lower temperature (317[degrees]C) compared with the un-drawn sample.
The possible explanations for this were: (1) the resin was swollen more completely at higher temperature, which made Hg(II) ions diffused more easily into the inside of resin; (2) the adsorption was an endothermal process and high temperature was of benefit to the adsorption.
However, for values higher than 25[degrees]C/min, other endothermal reactions, like decomposition of the material or styrene evaporation, can occur simultaneously to curing.
1, curves b, c), the initially formed lamellae can hardly evolve because of the high transportation energy, resulting in a small endothermal peak of [T.
