Abstract

Microcrystalline vinpocetine, coground with cross-linked polyvinylpyrrolidone, affords hybrids containing nanosized drug nanocrystals, the size and size distributions of which depend on milling times and drug-to-polymer weight ratios. Using an innovative approach to microstructural characterization, we analyzed wide-angle X-ray total scattering data by the Debye function analysis and demonstrated the possibility to characterize pharmaceutical solid dispersions obtaining a reliable quantitative view of the physicochemical status of the drug dispersed in an amorphous carrier. The microstructural properties derived therefrom have been successfully employed in reconciling the enigmatic difference in behavior between in vitro and in vivo solubility tests performed on nanosized vinpocetine embedded in a polymeric matrix.
