Saccharin is a well-known non-carbohydrate, sulfonyl amide artificial sweetener and is generally used in the form of its calcium or sodium salt. It possesses a sweetening power of about 550 times more than that of saccharose. On losing the acidic imino hydrogen, it forms the corresponding nitro anion, which exhibits interesting coordination chemistry. It offers a bitter and metallic aftertaste which limits its use as an artificial sweetening agent.
Certified pharmaceutical secondary standards for application in quality control provide pharma laboratories and manufacturers with a convenient and cost-effective alternative to pharmacopeia primary standards.
These Secondary Standards are qualified as Certified Reference Materials. These are suitable for use in several analytical applications including but not limited to pharma release testing, pharma method development for qualitative and quantitative analyses, food and beverage quality control testing, and other calibration requirements.
Saccharin can be used as a pharmaceutical reference standard for the determination of the analyte in pharmaceutical formulations by chromatographic and spectrophotometric techniques.
A sweet tastant for mammals. A glycerol taste receptor binding site specific for glucose has been proposed in drosophila.
These secondary standards offer multi-traceability to the USP, EP (PhEur) and BP primary standards, where they are available.
This Certified Reference Material (CRM) is produced and certified in accordance with ISO 17034 and ISO/IEC 17025. All information regarding the use of this CRM can be found on the certificate of analysis.
