Discussing a comprehensive range of topics, Advanced Pharmaceutics: Physicochemical Principles reviews all aspects of physical pharmacy. The book explains the basic, mechanistic, and quantitative interpretation skills needed to solve physical pharmacy related problems. The author supplies a strong fundamental background and extensively covers thermodynamics, ionic equilibria, solutions and distribution, surface chemistry and colloids, kinetics, diffusion, and polymer science. He outlines the latest research on diffusion through a membrane and the use of polymers in dosage forms.Packed with formulae and models, the book demonstrates the development of each and then describes the use of those models for a variety of formulation situations. The author's detailed explanation of the evolution of the formulae provides a clear understanding of when and how they are used. This bottom-up approach delineates the evolution of the formulae and gives a clear understanding of when and how they should be used. The book provides an in-depth review and analysis of dosage form design criteria that you can rapidly implement in your day-to-day work.
