 About The Book  

   This laboratory manual is intended to third and final year level of B. Pharm. students. Till today, no book is available on practical part of pharmaceutical engineering. Hence, we hope that our book will satisfy the needs of the teachers and students as the theory part did. In a few universities, this subject is also called as unit operations.
   Special emphasis is laid on the following:
       –  Examples
       –  Diagrams & Tables
       –  Model Calculations
       –  Question Bank
       –  Model Question Papers
       –  Appendix as a ready reference
       –  Question Bank
