Abstract

Binders are used in the tablet formulation for increasing the cohesiveness between the active pharmaceutical agent and other excipients. Search for new binders as a potential binding agent in tablet dosage form continues to be of interest. This is because different binding agents can be useful in achieving various tablet mechanical strength and drug release properties for different pharmaceutical purpose. Binders impart cohesiveness to granules. Natural polymers are widely used in the pharmaceutical and food industry as excipients and additives due to their low toxicity, biodegradable, availability and low cost. Natural binders like different starches, gums, mucilages, dried fruits possess binding capacity as well as some other properties like disintegrant, filler, sustain release, and modify the performance of dosge form and also increase patient compliance. These natural polymers are much safer and economical than synthetic ones. Different gums like gum arabic, tragacanth, karaya, shellac, xanthen etc shows good potency as a binding agent.
