About the Author:

Professor Martin always demanded the best of himself, his students, and his colleagues. The fact that the subsequent and current editions of Martin’s Physical Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences have remained faithful to his vision of scientific excellence as applied to understanding and applying the principles underlying the pharmaceutical sciences is indeed a most appropriate tribute to Professor Martin’s memory. It is in that spirit that this fiftieth anniversary edition is formally dedicated to the memory of that visionary and creative pioneer in the discipline of physical pharmacy, Alfred N. Martin.
