FORMULATION AND CHARACTERIZATION OF BORIC ACID TOPICAL FORMULATIONSAbstract
The present study depicts formulation and characterization of boric acid gel formulations. The formulated gels intervenes the advantages of gels along with higher and effective antimicrobial activity when compared to the formulations available in the market. The preparations were evaluated for different parameters as basic physico-chemical properties like physical appearance, texture, pH measurement, spreadability, viscosity and spectral analysis (UV-Visible and IR Spectroscopy) for its standardization. The sharp peak at 230nm was obtained in UV-Vis spectra. I.R spectra revealed that the boric acid binds extensively to the polymers. Antimicrobial activity of formulation was studied using Muller Hinton agar medium against E.coli MTCC 614 and S.aureus MTCC 3160.
