Disintegration is the process in which tablets/granules break up in an aqueous environment, allowing the active ingredient to be released for dissolution. A disintegration aid added to a powder blend for direct compression tableting or encapsulation is called a disintegrant.
This handbook details topics including:
- The Mechanisms Influencing Disintegration
- Working With Disintegrants
- How to Improve Disintegration Time
- Fast Disintegrating Tablets
- Excipients to Accelerate Disintegration
