Pharmaceutical analysis is the application of analytical procedures used to determine the purity, safety and quality of drugs and chemicals.
Meant for undergraduate students of Pharmacy, this book emphasizes the basics of pharmaceutical analysis, techniques used in analysis, methods of expressing concentrations, preparation and standardization of various molar and normal solutions, titrations & electrochemical methods of analysis. Recent developments in pharmaceutical analysis have been incorporated.
Pharmaceutical analysis is used to:
identify the drug in the formulated product;
confirm whether the formulation contain solely the active ingredient or additional impurities are presents;
check the stability of the drug;
find the rate of drug release from its formulation;
confirm the identity and purity of pure drug meets specification;
measure the concentrations of specified impurities; and
confirm the pKa values, partition coefficients, solubilities.
