The model discrimination method was used to identify a discriminative experimental recipe for a reaction system of interest . The experiment was then conducted to generate data that was qualitatively compared against the model predictions. The model that better explains the trends of the experimental data is deemed to be the best representation of the system among the candidates. To illustrate the use of this method, case studies for different reactions in drug substance process development will be given.
Once a model is discriminated, further investigation can be performed to optimally parameterize the model by following a model based experimental design method. A representative model can help the process development team determine safer and more efficient operating conditions.
