Pharmaceuticals In Chemistry

Improved Essays
Pharmaceuticals are medicals drugs that are used or sold. When dealing with pharmaceuticals you have to deal with mixing substances together, knowing how much to put in every dosage, acids and bases, matter, chemical and physical properties, and etc. Pharmaceuticals are made of elements that are apart of the periodic table. That happens when combining two or more elements together causing a chemicals reaction. Also in chemistry is a law called the Law of Conservation of Matter which is used to determine chemical composition in compounds and chemical reactions. To determine this you would need to use a process called stoichiometry.
(SC1) Pharmaceuticals is the production, engineering, and manufacture of medicines and drugs likewise this is

Atomic theory is the idea that all matter is made up of little units called atoms at can not be created or destroyed. Due to the understanding of atomic structure and anatomy of an atom the medical field knowledge has grown at a fast rate, subatomic particles are now used in diagnosis and treatment. Each medication has a makeup of atoms combined together to form a substance used to treat the body. Without each characteristic the desired compound couldn’t be formed accurately, knowing the number of protons, electrons, and neutron count along with the mass plays an important role in mixing two or more element to create a single …show more content…
It’s more than hearing a parent or guardian say “take your medicine”. Varies things such as mixing substances, accurately combining, knowing correct calculations, chemical and physical properties along with the acid or base concentration go into the creation of these drugs. Form the elements of the periodic table Pharmaceuticals are made which cause chemical reaction (determined by The Law of Conservations of Matter) to occur inside the body either helping or hurting a certain problem. To the process called stoichiometry concentration of each element needed is found to calculate the exact amount to form the certain drug. Without any of these factors being used, the drugs we use each and every day such as Tylenol and Calcium wouldn 't be available. Our lives as we know them today would be completely different if pharmaceuticals were not available to simply ease the pain or to rebuild the

    How readily does the drug passes through the intestinal wall into the blood (drug permeability) To find out how a drug is likely to be taken up when it is swallowed. The Biopharmaceutical Classification System (BCS) was introduced by Gordon L. Amidon in 1995. The BCS is a systematic way of classifying drugs into four categories according to their aqueous solubility and permeability. The need for the classification system is due to its application in drug development and change of product…

    First, hematotoxicity is the study of blood and blood-forming tissues as a target organ for drugs or different chemicals. It is the toxic effect that the substance has on the properties or components of blood. Additionally, other factors to include when determining toxicity are stress, exercise, and ionizing radiation. Furthermore, blood and hematopoietic tissue are target organs for scrutiny and the study in preclinical and clinical safety evaluations. There are several methods that researchers can use when conducting tests on drugs and substances.…

    Then, we had to convert the pH level into exponential notation. From this, we were able to write the equation for the ionization of the 0.1 M acetic acid (CH3COOH). Then, we had to solve the equation by inserting the exponential notations of the hydronium ions, the acetate ions and the acetic acid into the equation. Throughout our experiments, our data was either recorded in our tables or on the packet given to us during these labs. In our first lab, our data was recorded on both our data table and the packet.…

    The MTBE operation consists of various units; the focal units are De Iso Butanizer (DIB), Butamer, Oleflex and Ethermax. Methanol produced from QAFAC, mixed butane from QP NGL facilities and water with power from KAHRAMAA and small amounts of chemicals to be used such as: 10% Caustic, DMDS, PERC and Chlorine are the required raw materials needed to generate MTBE. Producing MTBE starts with passing the Butane mixture that is in the storage sphere at QAFAC through the DIB unit where the separation of Isobutane, Normal butane and heavy hydrocarbons occurs. The separated Normal butane is treated by removing the moisture, sulfur and other contaminates that negatively affects the catalyst. Then it passes through Butamer to generate a great amount…

    Titration is used to determine the equivalence point of a reaction, or the point when the moles of acid are equal to the moles of base in a mixture. Titration is used to determine the concentration of an unknown solution by using an already known solution. This process is important because it is commonly in the medical field. For example, pharmacists use titration in the creation of drugs. In addition, doctors also titration when determining the concentration necessary to give their patients of different medicines.…
