Abstract:

The importance of using the Raman imaging technique is increasing in pharmaceutical sciences, particularly in the quality control of active pharmaceutical ingredients, formulation design, and manufacturing development. Formulation design based on Raman imaging data is important for achieving quality by design. Recently, several novel Raman imaging measurement and analytical techniques have been reported. It is undoubtedly essential for pharmaceutical researchers and manufacturing engineers to use modern Raman imaging technology to produce the best quality pharmaceutical products. This short review seeks to inform researchers and engineers about recent developments in Raman imaging techniques applicable to formulation design and manufacturing.

Keywords: Raman spectroscopy, Raman imaging, formulation, manufacturing, active pharmaceutical ingredient, excipient, particle size, tablet.
