The Codex provides a reference source on all aspects of pharmaceutical science and technology that are relevant to the development and provision of medicine.
Part I covers the multidisciplinary nature of pharmaceutics and demonstrates how quality is built into medicines from conception and development to production and use. The chapters broadly encompass the pharmaceutics content of the syllabus for pharmacy undergraduates and also provide direction and support for the continuing education of graduates, with special emphasis on the requirements of those associated with product development and innovation.
Part II includes an extensive collection of pharmaceutical data, arranged in monograph form.
The Codex is edited by staff of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, using known experts to write individual chapters. The Pharmaceutical Codex represents an invaluable reference source to any person with an interest in the preparation and presentation of medicines including scientists engaged in formulation, development, or production; preregistration pharmacy graduates; students of pharmacy and related subjects; and all pharmacists both in the United Kingdom and overseas.
