AbstractThree solution models: ideal, regular, and quasi- regular, were used to predict the melting point of eutectic mixtures containing Polyethylene Glycol (PEG) 400 and PEG 4000 with nine poorly water- soluble drugs: 1-naphthoic acid, estrone, griseofulvin, indomethacin, phenobarbital, paracetamol, salicylic acid, salicylamide and naproxen. PEG 400 was physically mixed with drug at different weight percentages to determine the melting points of the pure drugs and the melting point depression using Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC). The PEG 4000 eutectic mixtures were processed by the solvent evaporation method. In both the PEG 400 and PEG 4000 study, the quasi-regular solution model accounted for the most realistic conditions of entropy and enthalpy of the mixtures compared to ideal and regular solution models.
