Pharmaceutical Isothermal Calorimetry discusses the application of isothermal calorimetric techniques to challenges encountered during the rational design and development of novel drugs and drug delivery systems. Providing a comprehensive review of recent research and trends, this book contains an expert discussion of research and applications to pharmaceutical characterization and formulation.


"The book describes principles of calorimetry, good experimental practice as well as providing many examples of pharmaceutical sample determination including studies on polymorphs, the amorphous state, compatibility studies for active pharmaceutical ingredients and formulated products…recommend[ed]…to not only the researchers who are intending to study isothermal calorimetry but also those who are actively involved in the front lines of the field."

--International Journal of Pharmaceutics
