Abstract:  Pharmacists involved in compounding must consider a number of factors when determining the actual quantity of an active ingredient to use for a compounded prescription. Many drug substances do not consist of 100% drug or chemical, and adjustments must be made to obtain the required amount of active drug (active pharmaceutical ingredient). This is true with inorganic salts, the topic of this article, along with other factors related to physical and chemical properties of the salts that must also be considered.
