Handbook of Pharmaceutical Drug Analysis

During the past two decades, there have been magnificent and significant advances in both analytical instrumentation and computerized data handling devices across the globe. In this specific context the remarkable proliferation of windows-based computer software stretched overwhelmingly towards instrument control, real time data handling abilities and the ultimate usage of Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS) are surprisingly noteworthy. Pharmaceutical Drug Analysis in its present form essentially comprises six parts containing in all 32 well-elaborated chapters predominantly dealing with the set of descriptive analytical methodologies developed to control and assure the quality of the final marketed product; and, therefore, includes both qualitative and quantitative methods of analysis to help in the identification as well as purity of the product. 

The main purpose of this textbook is to discuss in an explicit and lucid manner several of the newer methods that now find rather wider application in the domain of pharmaceutical analysis. The basic principle of each technique is critically treated with emphasis on factors that directly affect its proper and judicious application to various analytical problems. An in-depth knowledge of these principles, instrumentations, modus operandi, experimental parameters, and sample preparation procedures in order to optimize the performance procedure of typical assay of pharmaceutical secondary products i.e., dosage forms, calculations etc., along with cognate assays from the Official Compendia have been included profusely. 

Undergraduate and postgraduate students of pharmaceutical drug analysis, quality assurance chemists, industrial trainees, bulk-drug professionals and those in related disciplines earnestly requiring a substantial fundamental understanding and knowledge of the subject will certainly find this a much needed suitable compilation for reading and reference. The broad coverage included in each of the selected analytical techniques would render Pharmaceutical Drug Analysis to be an useful source of ideas, inspiration for research, and developing newer practical solutions to problems in the ever expanding field of pharmaceutical analysis.
