Glossary of Terms Used in Pharmaceutics

This Glossary of Terms in Pharmaceutics is needed by practitioners in the field of pharmaceutics—a field that fulfills an important and crucial role, different from the roles of other scientific disciplines involved in the drug-making process. The glossary contains 156 definitions used in pharmaceutics. These are related to various aspects of this discipline such as 1) physicochemical characterization of pharmaceutical preparations and the active ingredients they contain; 2) unit operations used in the practice of pharmaceutics; 3) terms related to the various dosage forms; 4) terms related to the various modes and routes of drug delivery; and 5) terms used in pharmacokinetics and biopharmaceutics in general, and additional miscellaneous terms. Since the field of pharmaceutics is multidisciplinary, with practitioners from a variety of fields such as chemistry or various biological sciences, a glossary containing authoritative definitions would be useful to them. The terms used in pharmaceutics are rarely covered by existing glossaries, and in cases were they are, their definitions are often inappropriate for the field of pharmaceutics and require new or modified definitions to better fit the new context.
