Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of sodium citrate on the properties of dried amorphous sucrose glasses. Addition of sodium citrate to a sucrose solution followed by freeze-drying or convective drying resulted in a glass transition temperature (T-g) that was higher than the well-studied sucrose T-g. This result was obtained either at reduced water content of the analysed sample or by removal of water during Modulated DSC analysis. After removal of the remaining water (
