Pharmaceutical Applications of Near-Infrared Spectroscopy

WithCarl A. Anderson, James K. Drennen, Emil W. Ciurczak

Although the pharmaceutical industry was slow in adopting this technique, a number of pharmaceutical applications of near-infrared (NIR) have been reported. This chapter will discuss the development, application, and validation of NIR spectroscopy for the pharmaceutical industry; the software and multivariate methods used for this work are covered extensively in other chapters and will be mentioned in passing.
