In pharmaceuticals, quality is our first priority; having the right shape, form and purity is crucial for drug safety and efficacy. Using techniques such as hot melt extrusion, where a material is heated with a polymer in order to control drug release, we aim to understand drug behaviour (such as mefenamic acid, shown after crystallisation) in order to increase manufacturing precision and create more effective drugs.
