Many significant advances made in the pharmaceutical sciences in recent years are, in large part, attributable to the accelerated development of knowledge of the molecular structure and physicochemical properties of drugs. The correlation of this knowledge with that of the nature of biological reactions of drugs is paramount to the practice of modern pharmacy in retail, clinical and industrial settings. This course will review certain topics presented in various general and physical chemistry courses taken in the pre-pharmacy curriculum and address how these topics influence the safety, effectiveness and reliability of medicinal products. This knowledge will assist the pharmacy student in the critical evaluation and preparation of dosage forms prior to dispensing them to a patient and will form a basis for understanding concepts in biopharmaceutics and pharmacokinetics introduced later in the curriculum.
