Book Description

Controlled Release Dosage Form Design offers the tools needed to eliminate trial-and error and wasted time and money in controlled release dosage form design! How is this accomplished? By helping the reader UNDERSTAND controlled release technology more quantitatively and mechanistically, thereby creating a "visual" overall picture of the technology.

Controlled Release Dosage Form Design is an invaluable tool for all students and professionals in pharmaceutics, chemistry, chemical engineering, biology/biotechnology and medicine. If you are engaged or interested in the development of dosage forms, you will find this book invaluable. You will learn to look at controlled release dosage forms INTERRELATED to each other, rather than piece by piece. You will learn to KNOW how the mechanistic principles which can be applied in dosage forms. Work faster, smarter and with more intuition!
