 About The Book  

    The Laboratory Manual of Physical Pharmaceutics contains several important experiments to be conducted during B. Pharm. course.
   The prime intention of the authors is to facilitate the students in comprehension and understanding of the subject properly through practical work. In fact, this book will be found useful for ‘self-learning’. The entire information is made available at one place. It will also serve as a ready reference to the industrial pharmacist.
    This Laboratory Manual consists of 20 experiments to be conducted during the year. There is a proper blend of various aspects concerned with preformulation and dispersion dosage forms. Preformulation aspects involve the evaluation of the order of chemical reactions, predicting the drug stability, interfacial properties, powder and particle characteristics, complexation etc. Preparation and evaluation of colloids, suspensions and emulsions have been included.
     Special emphasis is laid on the following

       1. Concepts, principles and applications are illustrated.
       2. Model calculations for each experiment will help the user in processing and analysing the raw data independently.
       3. Question bank is added for guidance of the students to improve performance.
