Learn about the analytical tools used to characterize particulate drug delivery systems with this comprehensive overview 

Edited by a leading expert in the field, Characterization of Pharmaceutical Nano- and Microsystems provides a complete description of the analytical techniques used to characterize particulate drug systems on the micro- and nanoscale. 

The book offers readers a full understanding of the basic physicochemical characteristics, material properties and differences between micro- and nanosystems. It explains how and why greater experience and more reliable measurement techniques are required as particle size shrinks, and the measured phenomena grow weaker. 

Characterization of Pharmaceutical Nano- and Microsystems deals with a wide variety of topics relevant to chemical and solid-state analysis of drug delivery systems, including drug release, permeation, cell interaction, and safety. It is a complete resource for those interested in the development and manufacture of new medicines, the drug development process, and the translation of those drugs into life-enriching and lifesaving medicines. 

Characterization of Pharmaceutical Nano- and Microsystems covers all of the following topics: 

  • An introduction to the analytical tools applied to determine particle size, morphology, and shape 
  • Common chemical approaches to drug system characterization 
  • A description of solid-state characterization of drug systems 
  • Drug release and permeation studies 
  • Toxicity and safety issues 
  • The interaction of drug particles with cells 

Perfect for pharmaceutical chemists and engineers, as well as all other industry professionals and researchers who deal with drug delivery systems on a regular basis, Characterization of Pharmaceutical Nano- and Microsystems also belongs on bookshelves of interested students and faculty who interact with this topic.
