This book uses a variety of specific application examples to illustrate how the corresponding experiments are to be carried out and what conclusions can be drawn from the results.  

An introduction preceding each topic describes the necessary methods and definitions addressed within and establishes the connection to pharmaceutical issues. Appendices to various chapters provide further information; for example, following the polymorphism chapter, there is a section dealing with the relationship between polymorphism and thermodynamics. 

The handbook is available in English language.
