Item description for Polymorphism: in the Pharmaceutical Industry by Rolf Hilfiker...
Edited by one of the leading experts in the field, this handbook emphasizes why solid-state issues are important, which approaches should be taken to avoid problems and exploit the opportunities offered by solid state properties in the pharmaceutical and agricultural industries.
With its practical approach, this is at once a guideline for development chemists just entering the field as well as a high-quality source of reference material for specialists in the pharmaceutical and chemical industry, structural chemists, physicochemists, crystallographers, inorganic chemists, and patent departments.

Reviews - What do customers think about Polymorphism: in the Pharmaceutical Industry?
Very useful text Jun 9, 2008
The chapters on Thermodynamics of Polymorphs, Characterization Using Thermal Analysis, Solvates, Characterization of Hygroscopicity, Polymorphism and Patents, and the final chapter on Considerations in Regulatory Applications were immediately useful in my application. The material is written at a very useful level, so that understanding is developed rather than a compilation of equations or examples. The chapters on Polymorphism Screening and Salt Selection also appear useful to the scientist needing to deepen their understanding of these topics. Overall a very useful book to the practicing pharmaceutical scientist.
