Pharmaceutical Monographs, Volume 7: Unit Processes in Pharmacy provides a survey of the industrial processes used in the large-scale preparation of pharmaceuticals. This book examines the movement of fluids, the transfer of heat, mass transfer, and the properties of powers.

Organized into two parts encompassing 14 chapters, this book begins with an overview of the analysis of the flow of fluids through a permeable bed of solids that is widely applied in filtration, leaching, and several other processes. This text then examines the transfer of heat from one fluid to another across a solid boundary. Other chapters consider the movement of relatively large units of gas, called eddies, from one region to another that causes mixing of the components of the gas. This book discusses as well the principle of filtration. The final chapter deals with the scale of segregation and the intensity of segregation.

This book is a valuable resource for undergraduate students of pharmacy and allied subjects.
