Rheological & Suspending Properties of Commonly Used Oral Suspending Vehicles

Little is documented about the rheology of commonly oral used suspending vehicles (which include everything from water through commercial suspending agents to semi-solid foods such as yoghurt which are often used in the administration of medicines to children). Following on from this, little is known about how larger particles (e.g. micrometre sized pellets which may be useful for modified release or taste-masking properties) suspend in media corresponding to the rheological profiles of these.
