Research Interest:
Dr. Haware's main research focus is on the emerging field of ‘Pharmaceutical Material Science’ to investigate the impact of the physico-mechanical properties of crystalline and amorphous materials on their final dosage form design. These properties include: particle size, shape, surface area, crystal structure, lattice energy, crystal forms (i.e. polymorphs and hydrates), relative crystallinity (and amorphous content), hygroscopicity and solubility. These properties affect powder flow, mixing, compaction and physical stability. Ultimately, they determine the final dosage form performance. The focus of his research is to use advanced analytical techniques like: powder and single crystal X-ray diffraction; differential scanning calorimetry; thermal gravimetric analysis; important modules in Material Studio®; and compaction simulator. Finally, he is interested to evaluate and model the generated information from these sophisticated techniques with the help of multivariate analysis techniques to develop predictive models within the subjected design space.
