Pharmaceutics I
Prerequisites: MATH 109, CHEM 105, CHEM 106
Course No: PHT 242
Credits: 3
Description:
This course is designed to introduce the quantitative and theoretical physical principles of science to pharmacy students that can be applied to pharmacy practice. Principles of chemistry, physics and mathematics are applied to the pharmaceutical sciences. The following subjects will be covered: fundamentals of measurement and calculation, interpretation of prescription and calculation of doses, states of matter, solubility and distribution phenomena, Rheology, surface phenomenon, crystals and Polymorphism, stability of pharmaceuticals and basic reaction kinetics, diffusion and dissolution phenomena, buffered and isotonic solution, colligative properties of solutions.

Textbooks:

- Pharmaceutical Calculations by Howard Ansel& Mitchel Stoklosa.

- Physical Pharmacy by Martin A., Swarbrick J., and Cammarata A. Lea & Febiger, USA
