Pharmaceutical Applications of Raman Spectroscopy
edited by Slobodan Sasic

Pharmaceutical Applications of Raman Spectroscopy provides the basic theory of Raman effect and instrumentation, and then addresses a wide range of pharmaceutical applications.

Current applications that are routinely used as well as those with promising potential are covered.

Applications cover a broad range from discovery to manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry and include identifying polymorphs, monitoring real-time processes, imaging solid dosage formulations, imaging active pharmaceutical ingredients in cells, and diagnostics.
