Compaction of powder constituents -- both active ingredient and excipients -- is examined to ensure consistent and reproducible disintegration and dispersion profiles. This unique reference covers: * the physical structure of pharmaceutical compacts * bonding phenomena that occur during powder compaction * compression mechanisms of pharmaceutical particles * theories and basic principles of powder compaction New topics include: * compaction data analysis techniques * the migration of powder constituents into commercial manufacture * instrumentation for compaction * compaction functionality testing, which is likely to become a USP requirement * design space for compaction * metrics required for scalability in tablet compression * interactive compaction and preformulation database for commonly used excipients
