Excipient Selection Considerations

 

The selection of the excipient(s) for a tablet formulation should take into account the API properties, process, target formulation and potential impact on the formulation. Some of those API properties can be

  • Dose
  • Particle Size
  • Flow Properties
  • Bulk Density
  • Moisture Content
  • Hygroscopicity
  • Excipient Compatibility
  • Compactability

 

The following tables show some possible impacts on the tablet formulation and considerations to take into account. Pharmaexcipients.com thanks Fred Monsuur, Grace for the valuable data.
