Pharmaceutics is a specific discipline of pharmacy which is concerned with the process of converting new chemical entities or an old drug into safe and therapeutically effective medications. It is also called “the science of dosage form design”. There are many chemicals with pharmacological properties, but need special measures to help them achieve therapeutically relevant amounts at their sites of action. Pharmaceutics helps relate the formulation of drugs to their delivery and disposition in the body.[1] Pharmaceutics deals with the formulation of a pure drug substance into a dosage form. The important areas in this field are:Pharmaceutical formulation; Pharmaceutical manufacturing; Dispensing pharmacy; Pharmaceutical technology; Physical pharmacy; Pharmaceutical jurisprudence; Drug design and manufacturing; Novel drug delivery systems.
