Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Traditionally, pharmaceutical analysis referred to the separation, purification, identification, and quantification of the given compound (active pharmaceutical ingredients, pharmaceutical excipients) in pharmaceutical drug products. Today, advanced techniques are used in all stages of the drug cycle, from drug discovery for structure elucidation to in-process control and the finished drug control for batch certification, before release on the market. Also, modern pharmaceutical analysis includes technical procedures for the pharmaceutical characterization of the intermediate product or finished dosage forms, with a focus on in vitro drug release. The concept of Process Analytical Technology (PAT) has promoted the development of innovative, high-throughput technologies based on chemometrics for at-line, in-line, or on-line monitoring of the manufacturing process. In pharmaceutical development, an important role is played by the application of advanced solid-state analysis in the pre-formulation stage.

This Special Issue will cover aspects regarding current advances in analytical techniques or procedures for characterization and analysis used in pharmaceuticals. We sincerely invite researchers to contribute high-quality original research or review articles on topics of pharmaceutical analysis.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Molecules is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
