Integrated Physical Pharmacy and Pharmaceutics II

About Integrated Physical Pharmacy and Pharmaceutics II

The design of the course is based on the integration of the study of physico-chemical principles of pharmacy with the formulation, preparation and stabilization of semisolid and solid pharmaceutical dosage forms. In line with this, the course deals with scientific principles related to thermodynamic and electrical properties of colloidal systems, and diffusion and dissolution theories associated with drug release kinetics from dosage forms. The module is also designed to enable students apply these theories and principles for the formulation and production of semisolid and solid dosage forms in the practical compounding sessions and thereafter during their professional career. The principles of drug degradation mechanisms, rate and kinetic theories of chemical reactions are also included for their application in the determination of product shelf-life and stability studies. The applications of pharmaceutics in cosmetics, overview of radiopharmaceuticals and veterinary dosage forms are also included
