Studies of thermodynamics often fail to demonstrate how the mathematical intricacies of the subject relate to practical laboratory applications. Thermodynamics of Pharmaceutical Systems makes these connections clear, emphasizing specific applications to pharmaceutical systems in a study created specifically for contemporary curriculums at colleges of pharmacy.

Students investigating drug discovery, drug delivery, and drug action will benefit from Kenneth Connors’s authoritative treatment of the fundamentals of thermodynamics as well as his attention to drug molecules and experimental considerations. An extensive appendix that reviews the mathematics needed to master the pharmacy curriculum proves an invaluable reference. Connors divides his one-of-a-kind text into three sections: Basic Thermodynamics, Thermodynamics of Physical Processes, and Thermodynamics of Chemical Processes; chapters include:

  • Energy and the First Law of Thermodynamics
  • The Entropy Concept
  • Phase Transformations
  • Solubility
  • Acid-Base Equilibria
  • Noncovalent Binding Equilibria

Thermodynamics need not be a mystery nor be confined to the realm of mathematical theory. Thermodynamics of Pharmaceutical Systems introduces students of pharmacy to the profound thermodynamic applications in the laboratory while also serving as a handy resource for practicing researchers.

About the Author:

Kenneth A. Connors is Professor Emeritus in the School of Pharmacy at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. His research interests include organic analytical reactions, their catalysis, mechanisms, and applications, kinetic methods for the analysis of mixtures and the chemistry of molecular complexes.

Sandro Mecozzi received his PhD in 1996 from the California Institute of Technology, and joined the faculty of the Division of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the School of Pharmacy, University of Wisconsin-Madison, in 1999. He currently holds joint appointments in the departments of pharmacy and chemistry. His research interests include the areas of RNA recognition, fluorous self-assembly, and the development of novel drug delivery systems.

Review:

"...eminently suitable for its target audience...the book will also be of use to anyone in the pharmaceutical field who has forgotten his or her thermo and needs a refresher course..." (Pharmaceutical Development and Technology, Vol. 8, No. 3)

"...the book for those who are just entering the world of thermodynamics as well as for those...without active participation...this book should be the one to read first before any other books...graduate students...and those scientists in pharmaceutical industry will find the book...invaluable in their research..." (Pharmaceutical Research, Vol. 20, No. 9, September 2003)
