Colloid and Interface Science in Pharmaceutical Research and Development.


Colloid and Interface Science in Pharmaceutical Research and Development

Hiroyuki Ohshima and Kimiko Makino



516 pages




Ohshima and Makino present this volume for researchers and developers on colloidal and surface chemistry in pharmaceutical science. The first two chapters cover the microphysics of colloidal particles and the general relevance of micelles, nanoparticles, and similar constructions to pharmacy. Several chapters discuss interfacial properties of materials used to deliver inhaled medicines, followed by similar considerations in transdermal delivery. Contributions on emulsified systems and dispersity analysis lead into treatment of cellular response to small particles, surfaces, and functionalizations. The remaining chapters discuss particular techniques and applications, including polymer design, nanoparticle transport, fluorinated colloids, nucleic acid delivery, organ targeting, insulin delivery, and lipid carriers.
