Abstract

Physicochemical Basis of Pharmaceuticals explores the physical and chemical phenomena which affect the formulation and bio-availability of drug substances to give a treatment of the essential concepts affecting the absorption and distribution of drugs. The first chapter covers pharmaceuticals and medicines. The next chapter looks at pharmaceutical solutions. There follows a chapter on pharmaceutical equilibria. Then there is a chapter on the pharmaceutical solid base. The text also looks at two phase solid-liquid disperse systems and biological interfaces. The final chapter is about physiochemical aspects of pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics.
