How does Activated Carbon work in the production of antibiotics?

On this occasion we are going to focus on the importance of activated carbon for the pharmaceutical sector. We can say that it is able to improve the production, efficiency and quality of medicines, which can contribute to improving people’s health worldwide.


Activated carbon in the pharmaceutical sector

Activated carbon is a very versatile material used in many sectors, from the food industry to the pharmaceutical sector.


In the pharmaceutical sector, activated carbon is used to filter and purify pharmaceutical products. The adsorption of impurities in activated carbon can improve the effectiveness and safety of medicines, as well as improve the quality of the final products.


Activated carbon for antibiotic filtration

In the production of antibiotics, activated carbon is used to filter and purify the chemical mixture. This helps remove unwanted impurities, contaminants and undesirable by-products. It also helps to reduce the levels of intermolecular forces, resulting in a more homogeneous mixture.


In addition, activated carbon is also used to improve the stability of these pharmaceutical products, by removing residues and unwanted contaminants. This helps prevent the pharmaceutical product from degrading prematurely, allowing it to reach its optimal composition for use.


Furthermore, activated carbon is also used to improve the organoleptic properties of pharmaceutical products. 


In order words, activated carbon is also used to improve the taste, smell and colour of pharmaceutical products. This can increase the acceptance of the product by patients and thus increase the success of the therapy.


At ChiemiVall we know that there are many factors that make activated carbon an unrivalled ally of the pharmaceutical industry.


On a commercial level, using activated carbon to improve the stability of medications, contributes to improving their useful life. This helps to avoid degradation of medicines by preventing the oxidation of their components, which not only improves the quality and safety of medicines, but also reduces production costs.
