Spray drying is a well-established method for transforming liquid materials into dry powder form. Widely used in the food and pharmaceutical industries, this technology produces high quality powders with low moisture content, resulting in a wide range of shelf stable food and other biologically significant products. Encapsulation technology for bioactive compounds has gained momentum in the last few decades and a series of valuable food compounds, namely flavours, carotenoids and microbial cells have been successfully encapsulated using spray drying. Spray Drying Technique for Food Ingredient Encapsulation provides an insight into the engineering aspects of the spray drying process in relation to the encapsulation of food ingredients, choice of wall materials, and an overview of the various food ingredients encapsulated using spray drying. The book also throws light upon the recent advancements in the field of encapsulation by spray drying, i.e., nanospray dryers for production of nanocapsules and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modeling. Addressing the basics of the technology and its applications, the book will be a reference for scientists, engineers and product developers in the industry.
This book presents comprehensively the science and technology behind the formulation of disperse systems like emulsions, suspensions, foams and others. Starting with a general introduction, the book covers a broad range of topics like the role of different classes of surfactants, stability of disperse systems, formulation of different dispersions, evaluation of formulations and many more. Many examples are included, too. Written by the experienced author and editor Tharwart Tadros, this book is indispensable for every scientist working in the field.
In this era of biotechnology there have been many books covering the fundamentals of recombinant DNA technology and protein chemistry. However, not many sources are available for the pharmaceutical develop ment scientist and other personnel responsible for the commercialization of the finished dosage forms of these new biopharmaceuticals and other products from biotechnology. This text will help to fill this gap. Once active biopharmaceutical molecules are candidates for clinical trial investigation and subsequent commercialization, a number of other activities must take place while research and development on these molecules continues. The active ingredient itself must be formulated into a finished dosage form that can be conveniently used by health care professionals and patients. Properties of the biopharmaceutical molecule must be clearly understood so that the appropriate finished product formulation can be developed. Finished product formulation development includes not only the chemical formulation, but also the packaging system, the manufacturing process, and appropriate control strategies to assure such good manufacturing practice attributes as safety, identity, strength, purity, and quality.

Die Herausgeber dieses Büchleins sind bzw. waren meine langjährigen Mitarbeiter und haben sich überwiegend mit der praktischen und ange wandten Pharmakokinetik beschäftigt. Aus der gemeinsamen Arbeit ergab sich, daß unsere Arbeitsgruppe immer wieder zu Fortbildungsvor trägen und Einführungskursen über das Gebiet der Pharmakokinetik gebeten wurde. Diese Veranstaltungen waren vor allem für jene gedacht, die sich bisher noch nicht mit der Pharmakokinetik beschäftigt hatten, die also wissen wollten, um was es sich bei dieser Materie überhaupt handelt. Beim ersten Hinsehen erscheinen manchem Mediziner und Biologen die Formulierungen und mathematischen Ableitungen, wie sie in einigen diesbezüglichen Arbeiten verwendet werden und wie ich sie in meinen Grundlagen der Pharmakokinetik ausführlich immer wieder bringen mußte, vielleicht zu kompliziert und zu abschreckend. Deshalb begrüße ich es, daß Herr Gladtke und Herr von Hattingberg bewegt werden konnten, den Inhalt dieser Kurse niederzuschreiben. Es soll eine Orientierung und Einführung sein. Sicher werden einige Leser dadurch angeregt, tiefer in jene Materie einzudringen, die ich seinerzeit (1953) Pharmakokinetik genannt habe, ohne zu wissen, daß diese Be zeichnung inzwischen weltweite Bedeutung erlangt haben würde. Damit wäre das Büchlein von Nutzen. Ich darf dies den Autoren wünschen. Gießen, Dezember 1972 F.H. DOST V Vorwort Diese Schrift ist als Einführung in die Pharmakokinetik gedacht und darf damit nicht als Lehrbuch, Nachschlagewerk oder erschöpfende Dar stellung verstanden werden.

Die Übertagung von Verfahren aus dem Labor-bzw. dem Techni-kumsmaßstab in den industriellen maßstab einer Produktiosanlage ist eine der wichtigsten ingenieurstechnischen Aufgaben in der chemischen Industrie. Die einzige zuverlässige Methode dazu basiert auf der Darstellung von Versuchsergebnissen im zutreffenden dimensions-analytischen Raum, der sich als maßstabsinvariant erweist. Das Buch ist in zwei Teile gegliedert: In der ersten Hälfte werden die vertiefte mathematische Vorkenntnisse dieses Themengebiet näherzubringen. Diskutiert werden die Grundlagen der Dimensionsanalyse, die Behandlung von temperaturabhängigen und von rheologischen Stoffwerten und die Modellübertragung bei Nichtverfügbarkeit von Modellstoffsystemen, sowie bei partieller Ähnlichkeit/ All dies wird dem leser anhand von 20 modernen Beispielen aus der heutigen verfahrenstechnischcen Praxis illustriert, der sich mit 25 in dieser Auflage neu hinzugekommenen Übungsaufgaben sein Verständnis aktive erarbeiten und anhand der Lösungen kontrollieren kann. Im zweitem Teil des Buches werden die einzelnen verfahrenstechnischen Grundoperationen aus den Bereichen mechanische, thermische und chemische Verfahrenstechnik aus der Sicht der Dimensionsanalyse und der Modellübertragung beispielhaft behandelt, und es werden für jede Operation die Maßstabsübertragungsregeln vorgestellt und diskutiert. Das vorliegende Buch wendet sich dementsprechend an Studenten wie auch bereits auf dem gebiet tätige Ingenieure, Chemiker und Verfahrenstechniker.
