The influence of tableting on the secondary structure and thermal stability of trypsin was investigated. Structural changes were analyzed by aqueous-state FTIR at isothermal conditions and with temperature scans by chemometrics and Boltzmann fitting. It could be shown that tableting alters the secondary structure of trypsin but only subtlety influence its thermal stability.
