Microcrystalline Cellulose revolutionized tableting because of its unique compressibility and carrying capacity. Its exhibits excellent properties as an excipient for solid dosages forms, compact well under minimum compression pressures, has high binding capability and creates tablets that are extremely hard & stable, yet disintegrate rapidly.
|. Direct Compression
||Chemical purity, binder, disintegrant, flow aid, filler, inertness
||Table making by direct compression involves only weighing mixing & compressing
|B. Wet Granulation
||Binder, rapid wicking action, permits fast additional of granulation fluid being most absorbent, most inert
