Abstract: The purpose of this report was to investigate the feasibility of using disk intrinsic dissolution rate (DIDR) to determine solubility class membership. We employed a VanKel dissolution apparatus fitted with a Wood's intrinsic dissolution die. To test the robustness of the method, variations of DIDR with compression force, dissolution volume, distance of the drug disk from the bottom of the dissolution vessel, and drug disk rotation speed were studied using furosemide and metoprolol in pH 4.5 acetate buffer as …
