Handbook of Pharmaceutical Granulation Technology
Third edition
edited by Dilip M. Parikh

Rapid advances in the science of granulation, particle engineering and process controls, along with regulatory changes, have prompted key opinion leaders and regulatory authorities to develop the Third Edition of this authoritative, practical reference book.


  • STAY UP-TO-DATE—with what's being introduced and implemented in the industry—such as the concept of design space, process optimization and harmonization of regulations by the global health authorities
  • LEARN FROM THE EXPERTS—more than 45 global experts in manufacturing, engineering, pharmaceutical technology, drug delivery, pharmacy, and other sub-specialty areas share their years of experience to develop a trustworthy, comprehensive reference
  • ENSURE REGULATORY COMPLIANCE—as regulatory bodies are restructuring and developing a product quality regulatory system which provides a framework for implementing quality by design, continuous improvement, and risk management, it is imperative that scientists continue to adhere to the latest guidelines and protocols
  • SAVE VALUABLE TIME AND MONEY—by learning how to achieve and manage the most efficient and thus cost effective product development and manufacturing operation in the current competitive environment
  • ENHANCE YOUR RESEARCH—new chapters on key topics such as supercritical fluids, nanoparticulate technology, nutraceuticals, biotechnology, controlled release granulation, process control, and expert systems provide in-depth analyses on key drivers in the field
