 About The Book  

   Rise in importance of Instrumental Methods of Analysis is due to advancement of medicinal chemistry towards the ultimate target i.e. "better medicines for better life".

   This book aims to provide a clear understanding of principles, procedures, limitations & applications in pharmacy of various Spectroscopic and Chromatographic methods. Types of Spectroscopies discussed are UV-visible Spectroscopy, Fluorimetry, IR Spectroscopy, Flame Photometry, Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy and Nepheloturbidometry. Types of Separation Methods(Chromatography) discussed are Adsorption & Partition Column Chromatography, Thin Layer Chromatography, Paper Chromatography, Electrophoresis, Gas Chromatography, High Performance Liquid Chromatography, Ion Exchange Chromatography, Gel Chromatography and Affinity Chromatography. The theoretical & practical knowledge of these instrumental techniques is required by analytical chemists for promoting precision in modern pharmaceutical drug analysis of active pharmaceutical substances as well as secondary pharmaceutical products,namely dosage forms of either single or multi-component formulated product.

   The book has been prepared as per the syllabus of Instrumental Methods of Analysis, recommended by PCI for 7th semester of B.Pharm course.
