Pharmaceutical Chemistry – Inorganic Vol I


SKU: 2a613b3a6737 Category:

The text “Pharmaceutical Chemistry – Inorganic, Vol I” has been revised according to the revised syllabus framed by the Pharmacy council of India. In this book, subject matter has been reorganised incorporating applicationwise classification (Therapeutic, pharmaceutical etc) rather than the traditional chemical classification. More emphasis has been further laid by explaining the medical and pharmaceutical terms and to what extent it is justifiable to classify a compound under any of the categories. Inevitably, students will find repetition for some compounds which find more than one application.

There are many important official and non-official inorganic pharmaceuticals (e.g., lithium carbonate, cis-platin, water, etc., on whom the latest edition of India Pharmacopoeia does not spell out. However, these have been described in this book to the same extent as others.

Every inorganic compound included in this book has been discussed under definition, preparation, properties, identification, tests for purity, assay method, storage condition and uses. Further, this book includes general treatment of topics such as impurities in pharmaceutical substances and their limit tests, principles and techniques of volumetric and gravimetric analysis, radioisotopes in pharmacy, pharmaceutical aids and necessities.
