A wide range of new processing and preparation technologies for use in pharmaceutical preparation is sought. Such technologies may enhance current chemistry processes such as finer milling that leads to faster in-process reactions. Or, the technologies may be applicable to pharmaceuticals after preparation, such as techniques for better tablet-forming, encapsulation techniques, or techniques for preparation of non-traditional delivery mechanisms. Technologies that offer improved shelf-life or transportation protection to the pharmaceutical irrespective of its eventual external packaging are preferable.
