Handbook of Pharmaceutical Additives (Second Edition)

£19.95

Product description

This best-selling handbook has been extensively revised and describes more than 5,000 trade names and more than 3,000 generic chemical components that are used in the formulation of both prescription and over-the-counter drugs. These additives enable or enhance the therapeutic delivery of the active ingredients in a variety of medications that include orals, topicals, suppositories, injectables, inhalants, etc. The chemical and material additives contained in this reference serve to: improve flow, taste, appearance; aid product uniformity; increase stability; and control bioavailability. Additive ingredients are an essential part of the pharmaceutical formulation and information about these chemicals and materials are critical to the manufacturer, quality controller, pharmacist, physician and consumer. This reference contains detailed profiles on both the trade name and generic chemical additives. Trade names and generic chemicals are indexed by function, application, CAS and EINECS/ELINCS numbers. Ingredients that are approved by the FDA or recommended by USP/NF, BP, or Eur. Ph. Are noted in the individual entries and summarized in an Appendix that contains Chemicals in Compliance with Pharmaceutical Standards. Over 2000 manufacturers of these pharmaceutical-grade additives are listed with full contact information, including email and internet addresses.
