    Book details

Pharmaceutics is one of the most diverse subject areas in all of pharmaceutical science. In brief, it is concerned with the scientific and technological aspects of the design and manufacture of dosage forms or medicines. An understanding of pharmaceutics is therefore vital for all pharmacists and those pharmaceutical scientists who are involved with converting a drug or a potential drug into a medicine that can be delivered safely, effectively and conveniently to the patient.

Now in its fourth edition, this best-selling textbook in pharmaceutics has been brought completely up to date to reflect the rapid advances in delivery methodologies by eye and injection, advances in drug formulations and delivery methods for special groups (such as children and the elderly), nanomedicine, and pharmacognosy. At the same time the editors have striven to maintain the accessibility of the text for students of pharmacy, preserving the balance between being a suitably pitched introductory text and a clear reflection of the state of the art.

  • provides a logical, comprehensive account of drug design and manufacture
  • includes the science of formulation and drug delivery
  • designed and written for newcomers to the design of dosage forms

Review Text

  • By Julia J. on 19 July 2017

    This book helped me to get a first in my third year of my pharmacy degree. I based all of my formulations revision of this book, it saved me a lot of time. It is very easy to understand. Definitely worth the money! It's very thick and covers everything from oral dosage forms to good manufacturing practice. I would say it is a must have for a pharmacy degree. The outer cover is a bit flimsy so I covered it a transparent film to protect it.

    I have a BSc Chemistry MSc Medicinal Chemistry and now I study B.Pharm Pharmacy . I bought this book for my class in Pharmaceutical Technology and with a strong background in Physical Chemistry I found this book very good for the transition from Physical Chemistry to Physical Pharmacy.It is ideal both for study and reference.I think this , Foyes Medicinal Chemistry and Principles of Pharmacology Golan, Klein Organic Chemistry and Stryer Biochemistry best books I came across

    I bought this textbook because it was the recommended textbook for our pharmaceutics lectures. I would always recommend this textbook.

    good quality, quick delivery, but there is some damage in the corner of the book..

    Could be my own ignorance on aspects of thermochemistry, but i did find parts of this heavy going. however it did supplement some of my lectures very well
