Objective: The main objectives of the course are to:
- To be able to conduct pre-formulation studies: Flowability, Solubility and Solubilization.
- To recognize the manufacturing process and formulation of solid dosage forms.
Syllabus: The series of practical classes provides advanced skills in the area of pharmaceutical technology and has particular emphasis on the methods, materials and testing procedures associated with the manufacture of pharmaceutical grade tablets and hard gelatin capsules, Solubility and solubilization: effect of chemical structure, effect of pH, salt formation, powder mixing, size reduction and co-solvent approach on dissolution. Experiments illustrate the solubility properties of substances, Granules characteristics, Quality Control and evaluation methods of manufactured tablets, Dissolution and disintegration of Dosage Forms.
