The ability of magnetic resonance techniques to provide the researcher with non-invasive, quantitative, physicochemical information in the disciplines of chemistry, biology, materials science, chemical engineering and medicine are widely known. In the last 10-15 years a variety of magnetic resonance methods have provided the pharmaceutical research community with valuable information, especially in the important area of drug delivery using solid dosage forms. Dr Mick Mantle’s research group have pioneered the development and applications of multi-nuclear fast MRI to study controlled drug delivery from solid dosage forms. Quantitative information can be acquired and used to give a fundamental, time resolved understanding of internal and external mass transport processes.
