Vibrational Spectroscopic Methods for Quantitative Analysis


Spectroscopic methods such as NIR, Fourier transform infrared, and Raman are becoming increasing important in pharmaceutical research and manufacturing. This chapter reviews both quantitative and qualitative applications of spectroscopic analysis for pharmaceutical products. Several applications of these technologies to stability testing are discussed.
