Physicochemical Principles of Pharmacy

Front Cover
Chapman and Hall, Jan 1, 1988 - Medical - 485 pages
This book provides the physicochemical background to the design and use of pharmaceutical dosage forms. It goes beyond the introductory aspects of the subject to show how basic physicochemical principles are essential to an understanding of every aspect of drug action, from the dosage form to the site of action in the body. This is not a textbook of physical chemistry for pharmacists, but is a book which bridges the gap between basic first-year physical chemistry and the more applied practice of later years. This extensively revised second edition includes much new material, illustrations and references to take into account recent scientific developments and curriculum changes.
