Polymorphs, salts, hydrates, solvates and cocrystals are gaining tremendous importance in pharmaceutical industries because of their ability to modify physicochemical and pharmacological properties of APIs (Active
Pharmaceutical Ingredients) which enhances their therapeutic efficacy. Therefore, pharmaceutical companies are focused on screening for APIs for polymorphism and the development aspects of novel salts/cocrystals that include physicochemical characterization scale up, processing and formulations of these materials. This necessities the requirement of proper training course for the employees involved in the characterization, and formulation of
pharmaceutical solids as well as to the post graduate students of Chemistry, Life Science and Pharmacy who can explore job opportunities after attending the proposed course. This course was envisaged and planned keeping in view the need of the pharmaceutical industry for the trained and skilled manpower for polymorph and cocrystal screening of APIs and the development aspects of these novel solid forms.
