Fine Particles in Medicine and Pharmacy
Pharmaceutical manufacture is very exacting – for example, drugs must be uniform in size, shape, efficacy, bioavailability, and safety. The presence of different polymorphs in drug production is a serious problem, since different polymorphs differ in bioavailability, solubility, dissolution rate, chemical and physical stability, melting point, color, filterability, density, and flow properties. Fine Particles in Medicine and Pharmacy discusses particle size, shape, and composition and how they determine the choice of polymorph of a drug.
Only book on the subject since the (probably out of print) book cited below. Edited by one of the most preeminent colloid scientists in the world This topic was prominently featured in an issue of C&E News last year
