Terahertz Spectroscopy Applications in Medicament Analysis

Sulovská, Kateřina. "Terahertz Spectroscopy Applications in Medicament Analysis." In International Conference on Applied Physics, System Science and Computers, pp. 45-50. Springer, Cham, 2017.

Terahertz spectroscopy came to the attention of the broader scientific community in the 90s of the 20th century with the development of science and technology in particular, enabling to work in terahertz spectral region. Terahertz spectroscopy has a wide possibilities of applications beginning in classical spectroscopy of gun powders, plastics, explosives, liquids, through terahertz imaging of medicaments, tissues, materials or layers, to remote observation/identification of hidden objects mainly for security purposes. The aim of this paper is to introduce possible applications in analysis of pharmaceuticals with different amount of active ingredient content. According to the results, the classical terahertz spectroscopy is not as suitable as other spectroscopic methods targeted on analyzing content of pharmaceuticals showing persistent inconveniences of this spectroscopy. All measurements were done using the TPS Spectra 3000 instrument.

Methanol-Water-Dependent Structural Changes of Regenerated Silk Fibroin Probed by Terahertz Spectroscopy

Wu, Xu, Xiaodong Wu, Bin Yang, Min Shao, and Guojin Feng. "EXPRESS: Methanol-Water-Dependent Structural Changes of Regenerated Silk Fibroin Probed by Terahertz Spectroscopy." Applied Spectroscopy (2017): 0003702817706368.

Abstract 

The mechanism of β-sheet crystallization in silk fibroin remains unclear, due to the 
incomplete information of protein assembly and structural state. The emerging terahertz 
(THz) spectroscopy (< 10THz) has been taken as an important tool to detect new aspects of biomolecular structure and is used for the first time to analyze the methanol–water (MeOH) induced structural changes of Bombyx mori silk fibroin. Mid-infrared spectroscopy (IR) and ...
