|The aim of the conference
is to assemble scientists and specialists from universities, scientific
institutes as well as from research and development areas of the
pharmaceutical industry. The anticipated subjects are in the interacting
fields of Applied Physical Chemistry with Pharmacy and overlap with
phenomena typical also for agrochemical and food products.
The physico-chemical and analytical characterization of active substances as
well as the description of dosage forms are main subjects of the venue.
The pharmaceutical importance of polymers and excipients and their
compatibility with drug substances will be outlined.
An exchange of information
is anticipated by a Scientific Program offering plenary lectures, key and
short communications as well as poster sessions. Lectures are also welcome
wich give overviews in the different aspects of research, development as
well as in the description of the physicochemical aspects of the
manufacturing processes of active substances, such as crystallization,
phase separation, drying, and grinding. Also included in our Scientific
Program are preformulation and formulation processes for different types
of dosage forms.
The program consists of the following sections:
Drug Substances: polymorphs, hydrates, solvates, salts, enantiomers; their thermal
characterization, phase diagrams, stability
Excipients and Polymers: characterization and compatibility
Drug Products: manufacturing, aging, and release; solid dispersions, semi-solid and
liquid forms, microemulsions, controlled released systems
Site-specific Drug Delivery: interactions drug-receptor
Instrumentation and Methods of Physical Chemistry: spectroscopy, microscopy, rheology, thermal analysis,
and calorimetry; new techniques, calibration, validation
You are cordially invited to participate in the PhandTA 8. The conference language will be English.
