Some sulphonamides are evaluated by means of thermal analysis. Use is made of their characteristic endothermic DTA peaks (melting peaks), where the area changes linearly with variations in the amount of sulphonamides. The method is suitable for the determination of 30–100 mg of sulphathiazole, sulphisomidine, sulphaguanidine, sulphacetamide sodium and sulphamethoxypyridazine with reasonable accuracy. As for sulphisoxazole, two peaks are used for its determination: an endothermic one to determine 30–100 mg, and an exothermic one to determine 6–30 mg.
