Analytical Profiles of Drug Substances and Excipientsby Harry G. Brittain
Pub. Date: 03/01/2001
Publisher: Elsevier Science
Although the official compendia define a drug substance as to identity, purity, strength, and quality, they normally do not provide other physical or chemical data, nor do they list methods of synthesis or pathways of physical or biological degradation and metabolism. Such information is scattered throughout the scientific literature and the files of pharmaceutical laboratories. Analytical Profiles of Drug Substances and Excipients, brings the latest information together in one source.
