 About The Book  

   This book is supplemented with the laboratory manuals to develop the skills and also to focus on the essential aspects. The current edition is the first edition of the laboratory manual of Physical Pharmaceutics–I.
   The physical and chemical principles and their impact on biological activity are important. This book attempts to bring all the relevant experiments at one place. This book is complementary to the textbooks (of the same title) followed by the students. The structure of the book was retained for maintaining familiarity and readability.
         1. Concepts and principles are Pharmacy oriented.
         2. Model calculations help in processing the raw data independently.
         3. Illustrations facilitate the students in organizing one’s laboratory work in a cohesive manner.
         4. Question bank is included for guiding the student to perform viva voce well.
