  • Introduction to Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry

This new, extended and revised edition of Introduction to Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry is primarily for pharmacy and chemistry students at university level, requiring basic knowledge on chemical analysis of pharmaceutical ingredients and preparations, and chemical analysis of drug substances in biological fluids. The first part presents the fundamentals of the main analytical techniques, whilst the unique second part focuses on identification, purity testing and assay of pharmaceutical ingredients, identification and quantitation of active ingredients in pharmaceutical preparations, and identification and quantitation of drugs in biological fluids. The updated content is in accordance to current practice in pharmaceutical analytical chemistry, and according to current versions of European and United States Pharmacopeia. Additionally, it features a new chapter on chemical analysis of biopharmaceuticals.

 

Q&A for "Introduction to Pharmaceutical Analytical Chemistry"

 

G.I.T.: What is your main focus in research, what is your main scientific interest?
All authors do research in the field of pharmaceutical analytical chemistry. Stig Pedersen-Bjergaard focuses on microextraction technologies, Bente Gammelgaard focuses on elemental speciation, and Trine Grønhaug Halvorsen focuses on new strategies for sampling and sample preparation of proteins.
 
G.I.T.:What will be – in your opinion – the ‘next big thing’ in the analysis of pharmaceuticals?
Pharmaceutical analytical chemistry is currently conducted in specialized laboratories, but this will gradually change and patients will control their medication with smartphones (or other handheld devices) in the future – thus analytical chemistry will be more and more on-site
 
G.I.T.: What was the reason to write the book?
Pharmacy students are trained in analytical chemistry, but general textbooks in analytical chemistry often lack the pharmaceutical perspective.

Our new textbook integrates analytical chemistry and pharmacy, and teaches comprehensively how to analyze pharmaceutical ingredients, pharmaceutical formulations, and human blood and urine samples.

 
G.I.T.: What is the target audience for the book?
- Pharmacy students
- Chemistry and biochemistry students with special interest for pharmaceuticals
- Scientist requesting an introduction to analytical chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry
 
G.I.T.: What knowledge is prerequisite for the book?
General chemistry (university level)
