This course covered the basic theories and unit processes encountered in pharmaceutical production. The course discusses the significance and application of these unit processes in pharmaceutical formulation.
PURPOSE OF THE COURSE
This course introduces to the student the basic theories and unit processes used in pharmaceutical formulation. It defines the underlying principles and their significance and application in pharmaceutical formulation. It also introduces principles in pre-formulation and formulation and their significance.
EXPECTED LEARNING OUTCOMES
At the end of this course, students should be able to:
- Describe unit processes, their significance and application in pharmaceutical formulation.
- Describe solubility and solutions
- Explain fluid mechanics
- Explain interfacial phenomena and activity
- Describe surface-active agents and their use in pharmaceutical formulation.
- Describe pharmaceutical pre-formulation and its significance.
