The course introduces the basic overview of spectral methods used for pharmaceutical analysis. It is dedicated to methods of both elemental and molecular analysis. Furthermore, detection, identification and quantification of both active ingredients and excipients by methods of molecular spectroscopy is discussed. The attention is focused on simple data evaluation either from the qualitative point of view using spectral libraries, or to obtain quantitative results using simple regression models.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Kubová Petra Ing. (16.01.2018)

Students will be able to:

Describe basic spectral methods suitable for elemental, molecular and phase analysis of pharmaceuticals, to explain their principles, typical instrumentation and data outputs.

Assess the suitability of individual techniques considering qualitative and quantitative analysis, the state of samples and the pharmaceutical formulation.

Use of both spectral libraries for identification of pharmaceutical components and simple chemometric models for quantitative description of multicomponent mixtures.
