Summary During the past decade, the importance of amorphous water-soluble substances has been increasingly recognised within the food and pharmaceutical industries. In response, Amorphous Food and Pharmaceutical Systems brings together current leading experts to contribute to this unique cross-disciplinary account of the subject. Coverage includes: water-compatible amorphous solids (physical, chemical behaviour), low water content systems (water as plasticizer); applications in food and pharmaceutical sciences and industries (processing and stability) along with state-of-the-art technology in food and pharmaceutical systems. This timely publication will be welcomed by academic and industrial researchers and professionals in the pharmaceuticals, food, materials and polymer sciences.
Note Proceedings of a conference held May 15-17, 2001, at Churchill College.
Bibliography Includes bibliographical references and index.
