Molecular modeling suggestions were commonplace in drug discovery fields for rational drug layout and compound screening. Now those suggestions  are used to version or mimic the habit of molecules, and support us learn formula on the molecular point. Computational pharmaceutics permits us to appreciate the mechanism of drug supply, and to strengthen new drug supply systems.

The e-book discusses the modeling of other drug supply structures, together with cyclodextrins, reliable dispersions, polymorphism prediction, dendrimer-based supply platforms, surfactant-based micelle, polymeric drug supply platforms, liposome, protein/peptide formulations, non-viral gene supply platforms, drug-protein binding, silica nanoparticles, carbon nanotube-based drug supply platforms, diamond nanoparticles and layered double hydroxides (LDHs) drug supply systems.

Although there are various present books approximately rational drug layout with molecular modeling recommendations, those ideas nonetheless glance mysterious and daunting for pharmaceutical scientists. This booklet fills the distance among pharmaceutics and molecular modeling, and offers a scientific and total advent to computational pharmaceutics. It covers all introductory, complicated and professional degrees. It presents a wholly varied point of view to pharmaceutical scientists, and may tremendously facilitate the advance of pharmaceutics. It additionally is helping computational chemists to appear for the real questions within the drug supply field.

This booklet is integrated within the Advances in Pharmaceutical Technology e-book series.

Example text

Thermal calorimetric measurements on polymorphic transformations, heats of fusion and melting temperatures can be used to construct energy temperature diagrams for known ­polymorphs, to give the order of stability at 0 K for comparison with lattice energy rankings. Measured enthalpies suggest that lattice energy differences between observed polymorphs are small, usually of order of a few kJ mol−1. Various reviews of computational methods applied to solid form pharmaceutical modelling reveal that predicting the relative stability of known polymorphs is challenging [54, 55].
