Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster


Structure-property relationships are often poorly defined in advanced continuous pharmaceutical manufacturing processes and products, and hence it is difficult to control the final product performance to the required degree to deliver advanced functionality. The dynamics of particles within complex mixtures and the effect of processes and storage on their disposition and microstructure is also challenging to measure. Hence, there is a clear need to have techniques for analysis and measurement of composition, dynamics and structure with increased spatial and temporal resolutions.
