- Learning Outcomes
- This paper is intended to bring together aspects of the chemical, physical and biological
sciences, with an emphasis on physical chemistry, to provide the basis for pharmaceutical
formulation. The laboratories seek to further illustrate some of the fundamental physicochemical
concepts underlying the formulation and assessment of various pharmaceutical dosage
forms. After successful completion of this paper, the students will have
- Developed an understanding of bioactives and pharmaceutical dosage forms as chemical entities whose properties are governed by physicochemical principles and an understanding of the importance of formulation technology in the development and assessment of pharmaceutical dosage forms
- Developed an understanding of the relevance of these principles for the quality use of medicines
