By means of a tensimetric flow method and a static method with a silica-membrane zero gauge, the dependence of vapour pressure on temperature was obtained for tris(2,4-pentanedionato)ruthenium(III), Ru(aa)3, and tris(1,1,1-trifluoropentane-2,4-dionato)ruthenium(III), Ru(tfa)3. The thermodynamic characteristics of vaporization and sublimation of these complexes were determined. The processes of thermal decomposition of the vapour of the compounds in vacuum, hydrogen and oxygen were investigated by using mass spectrometry in the temperature range 170–550‡C for Ru(aa)3 and 150–620‡C for Ru(tfa)3. The threshold temperatures of the stability of the vapour of the complexes and the rate constants of the thermolysis processes were determined. The main gaseous products of the thermal decomposition and the dependences of their composition on the presence of hydrogen and oxygen were established.

The present study was aimed at determining the kinetics of evaporation and establishing vapor pressure curves for both single and multi-component systems by thermogravimetry (TG) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). Essential oils (e.g. lavender oil, orange oil, clove oil and eucalyptus oil, etc.) are typically multi-component systems consisting of various volatile pure components (e.g. linalyl acetate, limonene, cinnamaldehyde, etc.) which resemble single component systems. In this study linalyl acetate was taken as the calibration compound for TG. The vapor pressure curves for the pure substances were plotted using TG and vapor pressure plots for clove oil and eucalyptus oil were constructed using DSC. The thermodynamic and kinetic parameters of the pure compounds were compared to that of the multi-component systems to quantitatively and qualitatively measure the influence of different compounds on each other. The k-value from the vapor pressure data for linalyl acetate was calculated as 112006 Pa kg0.5mol0.5s-1 m-2 K-0.5. The vapor pressure values were used to determine the Antoine constants using the SPSS 10.0 software.
The heat, equilibrium, and kinetics of adsorption of 1-ethoxy-2-propanol vapours on granulated activated carbon were determined simultaneously by a reaction calorimeter SETARAM C80 D at T=298.15 K at various relative vapour pressures (0.1< p/ps<0.8). The adsorption isotherm was correlated by the Freundlich equation. It was observed that the enthalpies of adsorption decrease slightly with increasing of the relative vapour pressure of the adsorptive. The rate of adsorption were calculated from analysis of the heat flux signals and it was found that the mass-transfer coefficient for 1-ethoxy-2-propanol vapours in granulated activated carbon increased with increasing relative vapour pressure of the adsorptive.

The thermodynamic relationship between crystal modifications of paracetamol was studied by alternative methods. Temperature
dependence of saturated vapor pressure for polymorphic modifications of the drug paracetamol (acetaminophen) was mea sured
and thermodynamic functions of the sublimation process calculated. Solution calorimetry was carried out for the two modifications
in the same solvent. Thermodynamic parameters for sublimation for form I (monoclinic) were found: ΔGsub298=60.0 kJ mol−1; ΔHsub298=117.9�0.7 kJ mol−1; ΔSsub298=190�2 J mol−1 K−1. For the orthorhombic modification (form II), the saturated vapor pressure could only be studied at 391 K. Phase transition
enthalpy at 298 K, ΔHtr298(I→II)=2.0�0.4 kJ mol−1, was derived as the difference between the solution enthalpies of the noted polymorphs in the same solution (methanol). Based
on ΔHtr298 (I→II), differences between temperature dependencies of heat capacities of both modifications and the vapor pressure value
of form II at 391 K, the temperature dependence of saturated vapor pressure and thermodynamic sublimation parameters for modification
II were also estimated (ΔGsub298=56.1 kJ mol−1; ΔHsub298=115.9�0.9 kJ mol−1; ΔSsub298=200�3 J mol−1 K−1). The results indicate that the modifications are monotropically related, which is in contrast to findings recently reported
found by classical thermochemical methods.
Derivatograph Q-1500D was completed with a partial vapour pressure control unit in order to study the sorption phenomena. The proposed arrangement allows to perform time consuming experiments at ambient atmospheric pressure in the temperature range 10–200°C.

The aim of this work is the optimization of the preparation of anhydrous gadolinium hydrogen phosphate with good fluorescence
properties. The products obtained by dehydration of gadolinium hydrogen phosphate trihydrate depend on the conditions chosen
for the thermal treatment. For this reason, the dehydration was followed by Constant Rate Thermal Analysis whilst strictly
controlling the water vapour pressure above the sample. Intermediate samples, obtained during dehydration were characterised
by IR spectroscopy and X-ray diffraction. It has thus been shown that the thermal pathway taken for the dehydration depends
on the water vapour pressure above the sample in the region from 10-2to 5 mbar. Under the lowest water vapour pressure (510-3mbar), the elimination of the crystallization water is carried out in a continuous way and produces a quasi-amorphous intermediate.
Under higher water vapour pressure (5 mbar), well crystallized intermediate products are obtained. The results obtained suggest
that the trihydrate contains zeolitic water which confirms a prior structural study.

The objective of this work was to develop
and validate a fast and reproducible method to determine the concentration
of metronidazole in drug substance and tablets. The samples were analyzed
by dynamic thermogravimetry, using 10, 20, 40, 60 and 80C min–1
heating rates in nitrogen and in nitrogen with synthetic air. Obtained data
were used in the Antoine and Langmuir equations in order to have the pressure
curves. Vapor pressure curves of drug and tablet of metronidazole were evaluated
using the mathematical indexes of difference factor, f1,
and similarity factor, f2,
to compare their profiles. The data showed that there is no significant difference
between the vapor pressure profiles of drug and tablet of metronidazole in
both environmental conditions, which confirms that the process is really vaporization.
The concentration of metronidazole was determined in the raw material and
tablets of the drug.
