Bridging academic research and industrial applications, this is the first modern approach to relate fundamental research to the applied science of colloids. Edited by the 'l'éminence grise' on this topic and written by the top scientists in the field, this text examines the role of colloid and interface science in pharmacy, as well as pharmaceutical formulations and drug delivery. It then goes on to treat pharmaceutical suspensions and emulsions, including multiple emulsions, as well as liposomes and the role of nanotechnology in drug delivery. A final section is devoted to the hot topic of stem cell research.
For surface and pharmaceutical chemists, physicochemists, chemical engineers and those working in the pharmaceutical industry.
