The lecture is focused on providing general knowledge of chemistry and physics of pharmaceutical solids. Great emphasis is put on the crystal structure and the resulting properties of drugs. Very important phenomenon of polymorphism and solid forms of active pharmaceutical substances (anhydrates, hydrates, salts, cocrystals) are discussed in more details. Chemical and physical degradation processes and products of solid API are also mentioned.
Aim of the course -
Last update: Kratochvíl Bohumil prof. RNDr. DSc. (09.01.2018)

Students will be able to:

understand the internal structure and arrangement of crystal and amorphous phases of solid pharmaceutical ingredients (API)

knowledgeable in polymorphism of anhydrates, hydrates, salts, cocrystals

predict possible degradation processes and products of solid API‘s
