Role of chemical and physical properties of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and excipients in
relation to their processing behaviour and bioavailability of the final dosage form. Molecular-level process
analysis of pharmaceutically relevant unit operations (crystallization, milling, wet/dry granulation, compaction,
coating), with particular emphasis on the use of spectroscopic techniques (near infrared, NIR, terahertz, THz
and Raman) together with imaging modalities and related multivariate data analysis tools. Material analysis,
at particulate level (particle size/shape distribution, density of material, imaging techniques, compaction
properties) and structural level (identification and quantification of crystalline/amorphous phases), specifically
using X-ray powder diffraction equipment, thermal methods (thermogravimetry, DSC, calorimetry) and
