 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–II.

   The physical and chemical principles are applied in the design of dosage forms (formulation development). This book attempts to bring all the relevant experiments at one place. The structure of book is retained for maintaining the 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.
