The effects of compact size and of powder particle size on the determination of "apparent" compressive Young's modulus of elasticity, E, were evaluated, for three pharmaceutical excipients (Microcrystalline cellulose, MCC, Calcium hydrogen phosphate dihydrate, CHPD, and pregelatinized starch, PGS) differing in deformational behaviour during compression. One- and two-compact (composite) specimens were employed and the equations of Spriggs [J. Am. Ceram. Soc. 44 (1961) 628] and Phani & Niyogi [J… CONTINUE READING
