For example, even if the differences in costs have been underestimated, endothermal treatment would remain the optimal strategy even if the costs of all the other treatments are half of what we estimated in the base case.
Analyses of NYSs by DSC show wide and single endothermal peaks which indicate the lack of polymorphism and the impurity of samples.
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.
The samples then suffer a melting process at 196-210C with a sharp endothermal peak in DTA curve and without weight loss in the corresponding TG curve, and then decomposing at 270-840C temperature interval.
It should be noted that, in the calculation except the very last instants of MCCI, Si[O.sub.2]--Zr interaction is endothermal in the bulk of the pool, as shown in Figures 4 and 7 (the horizontal full line at 2143 K).
Thus, although the DSC heating thermograms of the PLA did not show melting endothermal peak, its DSC cooling thermograms displayed a broad weak melting exothermal peak in the temperature range of 105-45 [degrees]C (Figure 1(b)).
An exothermic effect and maximum gain in mass occurred at the temperature of 840[degrees]C; an endothermal effect, connected with the removal of hydrogen, can be followed in the temperature range 550-700[degrees]C.
At higher temperature an endothermal phase change takes place in the temperature interval 120-170[degrees]C.
Two endothermal peaks were obtained from the the DSC curve of hesperidin.
The [T.sub.cc] and [T.sub.m] were taken as the peak values of the respective exothermal and endothermal processes in the DSC thermograms.
On the contrary, with long reaction times (90-120 min), the endothermal shift due to the glass transition tends to become wider and broader, suggesting the presence of linked chains.
