This unique reference examines the modern pharmaceutical compacting techniques used to form tablets out of powders - describing the physical structure of pharmaceutical compacts, the bonding phenomena that occur during powder compaction, and the compression mechanisms of pharmaceutical particles.
Covering fundamental theories of compaction, Pharmaceutical Powder Compaction Technology investigates questions of dominating bond types...analyzes the bonding area between particles in pharmaceutical compacts...considers the compression behavior of both ungranulated and granulated particles...elucidates the mechanical properties of particles and compacts...discusses employing mechanical analysis to predict the tableting performance of pharmaceutical excipients...elucidates the powder and tableting properties of excipients...and more.
Furnishing more than 1000 up-to-date literature citations and over 475 helpful tables, equations, drawings, photographs, and micrographs, Pharmaceutical Powder Compaction Technology is a vital reference for pharmacists and pharmaceutical technologists, engineers, and product developers, as well as upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
