G. g. g. aluminium lakes). Lakes, which are generally calcium or aluminium complexes of watersoluble dyes, are particularly useful in tablets and tablet coatings because of greater stability to light than corresponding dyes, which also vary in their stability to pH and reducing agents. H owever, in recent years, the inclusion of colours in formulations has become extremely complex because of the banning of many traditionally used colours in many countries. Other drug properties At the same time as ensuring that dosage forms are chemically and physically stable and are therapeutically ef cacious, it is also relevant to establish that the selected formulation is capable of ef cient and, in most cases, large-scale manufacture.

Whilst the physical and chemical properties of drugs and additives need to be understood, the factors in uencing drug absorption and the requirements of the disease to be treated also have to be taken into account when identifying potential delivery routes. The formulation and associated preparation of dosage forms demand the highest standards with careful examination, analysis and evaluation of wideranging information by pharmaceutical scientists to achieve the objective of creating high-quality, safe and ef cacious dosage forms.
