Special Issue Information
Following their formation, Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) undergo several process steps to form a solid dosage form, such as milling, mixing/blending, granulation, die-filling and tabletting. Although the overall process has been around for many years, challenges remain for each of these unit operations in terms of design, control and optimisation. Additionally, there is a drive towards continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing, which brings its own set of novel challenges. This Special Issue: "Recent Advances in Secondary Processing of Pharmaceutical Powders" aims to highlight the state of the art in all aspects of pharmaceutical production that follow crystallisation, including the processing of excipients.
