The course pharmaceutical analysis is designed to provide students with the ability to select and use appropriate methods for the qualitative and quantitative analysis of drugs. The course is mainly aimed to explain the fundamental analytical methods of drug analysis including the theoretical background and the calculations needed with their applications in pharmaceutical analysis. They will also learn the analysis of drugs by using latest techniques including theory and instrumentation of atomic absorption & emission spectroscopy, flame photometry, I.R., Mass, NMR, UV/Visible spectroscopy. It will also include the study of column, thin layer, gas-liquid chromatography, HPLC and GC-MS. Potentiometry, polarography, radiochemical techniques and differential scanning colorimetry.
