Inorganic Controlled Release Technology: Materials and Concepts for Advanced Drug Formulation provides a practical guide to the use and applications of inorganic controlled release technology (iCRT) for drug delivery and other healthcare applications, focusing on newly developed inorganic materials such as bioresorbable glasses and bioceramics. The use of these materials is introduced for a wide range of applications that cover inorganic drug delivery systems for new drug development and the reformulation of existing drugs. The book describes basic concepts, principles, and industrial practices by discussing materials chemistry, physics, nano/microstructure, formulation, materials processing, and case studies, as well as the evaluation and characterization of iCRT systems commonly investigated during industrial R&D. Provides the first book on inorganic controlled release technology (iCRT), covering key aspects from chemistry, physics, synthetic methods, formulation design, characterization and evaluation Includes several industry-related case studies to provide practical guidance on how to use iCRT as an alternative to organic polymers systems for both future drug developments and other active ingredient applications Demonstrates how iCRT offers an unmet business need for improved, controlled release of actives versus traditional CRT systems, which are known to have difficulty with the controlled delivery of both poorly and highly water soluble drug compounds
