Although the official compendia define a drug substance as to identity, purity, strength, and quality, they normally do not provide other physical or chemical data, nor do they list methods of synthesis or pathways of physical or biological degradation and metabolism. Such information is scattered throughout the scientific literature and the files of pharmaceutical laboratories. Edited by the Associate Director of Analytical Research and Development for the American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists, Analytical Profiles of Drug Substances and Excipients brings this information together into one source. The scope of the series has recently been expanded to include profiles of excipient materials.


AUDIENCE: Analytical, pharmaceutical, and medical chemists; pharmacologists.

@qu:"Volume 25 of this series continues the long tradition of well-written and well-documented profiles of drug substances and pharmaceutical excipients that should be essential readings for the practicing pharmaceutical scientist...What makes this and the entire series of volumes a valuable work is the thoroughness of the presented data and the detail which is paid to consistency. It is hopeful that pharmaceutical scientists worldwide will help to maintain the outstanding reputation of this series by contributing profiles. The price of each volume is reasonable and can be purchased for a personal library. The entire 25 volume set should definitely be available in academic, industrial, and governmental laboratories where pharmaceutical research is being conducted." @source:--James T. Stewart, College of Pharmacy, The University of Georgia, JOURNAL OF PHARMACEUTICAL and BIOMEDICAL ANALYSIS @from:Praise for the Series @qu:"This volume and the entire 24 volumes are highly recommended for single individual use or by groups of scientists when placed in a corporate, government, or academic library. There is no comparable series of books that provides this important data in such a timely and meaningful manner." @source:--James T. Stewart in JOURNAL OF NATURAL PRODUCTS @qu:"This series was first published in 1972 and represents a very important contribution to the practice of pharmaceutical analysis...This volume represents an excellent overview of physical, chemical, and biochemical properties of some regularly prescribed drugs." @source:--Brian J. Clark in THE ANALYST

About the Serial Editor

Harry Brittain

Dr. Brittain is presently the Institute Director of the Center for Pharmaceutical Physics, a research and consulting institute he established in 1999 for the study of substances having pharmaceutical interest. His research interest include all areas of pharmaceutical physics and physical pharmacy, including preformulation, formulation design, product characterization, polymorphism, solvatomorphism, and cocrystals of drug substances. Formerly, Dr. Brittain was Vice President for Pharmaceutical Development of Discovery Laboratories, Inc., he served as Director of Pharmaceutical Development at Ohmeda, Inc., and also led a variety of groups within the Analytical R&D department at Bristol-Myers Squibb. Dr. Brittain is a graduate of Queens College (B.A. in chemistry, 1970; M.A. in physical chemistry 1972), and of the City University of New York (Ph.D. in physical chemistry, 1975). He was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Virginia, and has held full-time faculty positions at Ferrum College (Assistant Professor of Chemistry) and Seton Hall University (Associate Professor of Physical and Inorganic Chemistry). He has been Adjunct Professor of Pharmaceutics at Rutgers University, and both Adjunct Professor of Chemistry and Visiting Research Scientist at Lehigh University. Dr. Brittain has authored over 340 research publications and book chapters, and has presented over 175 invited lectures and short courses in the pharmaceutical field. He has edited the monographs Analytical Applications of Circular Dichroism, Physical Characterization of Pharmaceutical Solids, Polymorphism in Pharmaceutical Solids (first and second editions), Spectroscopy of Pharmaceutical Solids, and Preformulation in Solid Dosage Form Development. He is also the Editor-In-Chief of the book series Profiles of Drug Substances, Excipients, and Related Methodology, having edited 23 published volumes in the series that is now published annually by Elsevier. Dr. Brittain is also an Editor of Physical Pharmacy for the Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and is a co-author of 22 issued United States patents. During his academic tenure at Seton Hall University, in 1980 Dr. Brittain was named as one of the Teacher-Scholars of the Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation. Dr. Brittain was elected as a Fellow of the American Association of Pharmaceutical Sciences (AAPS) in 1991, and received the AAPS Research Achievement Award in Analysis and Pharmaceutical Quality in 1998. He is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
