Learning Outcomes
The course's objective is to promote the understanding of the physicochemical principles of pharmaceutics, and the interrelations between the physical properties of the raw materials and those of the pharmaceutical formulations and final dosage forms. Additionally, the experimental methods used in the physicochemical characterization of pharmaceutical materials are thoroughly discussed.
General Competences
  • Apply knowledge in practice
  • Make decisions
  • Work autonomously
  • Work in teams
  • Work in an international context
  • Work in an interdisciplinary team
  • Generate new research ideas
Course Content (Syllabus)
Solid state properties (crystal structure, polymorphism, solvate formation). Solid phase transitions and their consequences on pharmaceutical product formulation. Methods of physicochemical characterization of pharmaceutical materials: optical microscopy, thermal analysis, vibrational spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, solid state NMR spectroscopy.
