Increasing numbers of pharmaceutical candidate materials are found to exist as crystalline hydrates. In general such organic hydrates exhibit variable stability, which can be strongly dependent on temperature and relative humidity. DVS instruments, combined with video imaging and Raman are ideal for mapping our the stability behaviour of pharmaceutical hydrates.
