Pharmaceutics is one of the most diverse subject areas in all of pharmaceutical science. In brief, it is concerned with the scientific and technological aspects of the design and manufacture of dosage forms for medicines. An understanding of pharmaceutics is therefore vital to all pharmacists and pharmaceutical scientists who are involved in converting a drug or a potential drug into a medicine that can be delivered safely, efficiently and conveniently to the patient. Professor Aulton's "Pharmaceutics" has become established as the clearest, most comprehensive textbook on this subject. The book provides pharmacy and pharmaceutical science students with the latest information on all aspects of pharmaceutics.
