The Journal of Materials Science publishes reviews, full-length papers, and short Communications recording original research results on, or techniques for studying the relationship between structure, properties, and uses of materials. The subjects are seen from international and interdisciplinary perspectives covering areas including metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers, electrical materials, composite materials, fibers, nanostructured materials, nanocomposites, and biological and biomedical materials. The Journal of Materials Science is now firmly established as the leading source of primary communication for scientists investigating the structure and properties of all engineering materials

The Journals reports principally the achievements of materials science and engineering all over the world, putting the stress on the original research papers, review articles invited by editor, letters, research notes with novelty as well as brief of scientific achievement, covering a broad spectrum of materials science and technology, encompassing:

• metallic materials 
• inorganic nonmetallic materials 
• composite materials

Dinesh M. Morkhade

senior formulation scientist

Dr. Dinesh M. Morkhade, 40 years old, is a Senior Formulation Scientist working at Piramal Healthcare Ltd., UK He received his Master and Ph.D. degree in Pharmaceutical sciences 2003 and in 2006, respectively. During his PhD period, he has focused his research on evaluation of some semi-synthetic polymers (rosin and its derivatives) for Pharmaceutical applications such as release modifying matrix formers, microencapsulating materials and sustained release coating materials in tablets and pellets (in capsules).

After Ph.D in 2006, he joined pharmaceutical company in India as a formulation scientist, and worked on development of Generic and NCE (new chemical entities) formulations using various conventional and novel pharmaceutical excipients. He has extensive work experience in Pharmaceutical wet granulation, roller compaction, Pelletization, bilayer tablets, pediatric formulations, tableting, tablet-coating and functions/properties of pharmaceutical excipients

Current Research

  • Evaluation of Rosin and its derivatives for their application in the field of drug delivery.
  • Wet granulation, roller compaction, bilayer tablets, fluid bed granulation, tableting, tablet-coating, low dose formulations, microparticles, pellets, extrusion-spheronization, sustained release dental films/implants, natural gums,hot melt extrusion, tablet in tablets and blend/powder characterization.

Interested topics

  • Investigation of natural gums and polymers for modified drug delivery systems.
  • Wet granulation, roller compaction, bilayer tablets, fluid bed granulation, tableting, tablet-coating, low dose formulations, microparticles, pellets, extrusion-spheronization, modified release dental films and powder characterization.
