Handbook for Chemical Process Research and Development (Hardcover) (Wenyi Zhao)
about this item
This book focuses on developing processes for chemical and pharmaceutical industries. Forty years ago, there was little process research and development activities in the pharmaceutical industry partially due to the simplicity of the drug molecules. However, with the increasing structural complexity, especially the introduction of chiral centers into the drug molecules and strict regulations set by the EMA and FDA, process R&D has become one of the critical departments for pharmaceutical companies. The key responsibility of process chemists is to develop chemical processes for manufacturing pharmaceutical intermediates and final drug substances for clinical studies and commercial production.
