A TECHNICAL NOTE ON GRANULATION TECHNOLOGY: A WAY TO OPTIMISE GRANULESAbstract
To provide an updated technical note on granulation technology (GT), mostly on novel GT, that will help researcher working/engaged in designing an efficient GT for getting granules with desired features. Granules were most widely used in the production of pharmaceutical oral dosage forms. Advancement in GT had revolutionized the sphere and resulted in development of several processes. Each and every process had advantages and disadvantages, and limitations. Depth knowledge in GT was a prerequisite to process product for obtaining targeted granulation with desired product parameters. In this regards updated literatures were collected from data bases, studied and was presented for easy reference of scientists engaged in granule production, so that they can adopt appropriate and suitable GT. Presented handy note will help researchers in designing a robust GT for getting optimised granule.
