Particulate Interactions in Dry Powder Formulations for Inhalation
by Xian Ming Zeng
Greg Martin
and Christopher Marriot

Particulate Interactions in Dry Powder Formulations for Inhalation combines principles and factors in pharmaceutical powder technology, critically reviews some of the studies carried out in dry powder formulation development, and proposes possible strategies for improving their efficiency. The majority of these principles are applicable to other pharmaceutical solid dosage forms (e.g. tablets and capsules.).
