Abstract

Some Characteristics of Theophylline Tablets Coated with Samples of Grewia Gum obtained from a Novel Extraction

Film coating of pharmaceutical dosage forms has contributed immensely to the advancement of drug delivery [1]. Film coating offers the benefit of less rigid coat which reduces cracking and other coating defects and also offers the possibility of coating other substrates such as powders, granules, pellets and capsules .

Keywords: Extraction methods; Viscosity; Coating efficiency; Grewia gum; Film coating agent.
