Development of Problem Sets for K-12 and Engineering on Pharmaceutical Particulate Systems
Educational problem sets have been developed on structured organic particulate systems (SOPS) used in pharmaceutical technology. The sets present topics such as particle properties and powder flow and can be integrated into K-12 and college-level curricula. The materials educate students in specific areas of pharmaceutical particulate processing, such as tableting and mixing, and engineering topics, such as material and energy balances. The educational development is part of outreach efforts associated with the NSF-sponsored ERC on SOPS led by Rutgers University.
