Product Design: An Introduction to the Development of Chemical, Pharmaceutical & Biological Products has been developed from course material from the authors’ course in Chemical and Biochemical Product Design, which has been running at the Technical University Denmark for three years. The book draws on the authors’ years of experience in academia and industry to provide an accessible introduction this field, which approaches product development as a subject in its own right rather than a sideline of process engineering. Written in an informal, student friendly, tone this unique book includes examples of real products and experiences from real companies to bring the subject alive for the student in addition to placing emphasis on problem solving and team learning to set foundation for a future in industry. The book is divided into five clear sections, an introduction to the subject, design, develop, exploit and activities. Knowledge of engineering calculus and basic physical chemistry as well as basic inorganic and organic chemistry are assumed. In this subject area practical experience is the key to learning and this textbook provides examples and techniques to help the student get the best out of their projects. Product Design: An Introduction to the Development of Chemical, Pharmaceutical & Biological Products is an invaluable resource for all students in this area of research.
