  • Diluent Directory?

    It's a bit of a long shot. But I was wondering if there are any Diluent Directory textbooks still in circulation? I have contacted the NPA and they said they have been discontinued for quite some time. Would be useful to have for a project I'm working on. Any help in the right direction would be much appreciated!

    Solid, Liquid, Oily emulsion or aqueous emulsion? you should give an indication of what type of product.

      Semi-solid dosage forms is what I'm after.

        OK, what I would call a paste. Is this for oral or external use? We cannot help unless you give us some idea of what you wish to proce. Pastes could be for oral use like tooth paste, vaginal or rectal or could be applied to ulcers like Lassars Paste.

          External use. There are 10's of products I'm looking to investigate mixing several diluents with and the safety data surrounding them. I was told the Diluent Directory would be the best bet so I was wondering if there were any in circulation.

            At last, we now know what you have in mind.Standard diluent for skin preps is a suitable grade of WSP. If you want it to be stiff ,then add in some paraffin wax.

              Yes thank you I am aware of that. However, different API's have various suitable/unsuitable diluents, hence why I wanted the directory to provide some more extensive data.

                In that case contact the Pharmaceutical Library or the British Library.
