Chemical characterisation of sodium starch glycolate particles.

The internal and surface chemical compositions of three sodium starch glycolate (SSG) products, Explotab, Primojel and Vivastar P were studied using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray analysis (EDX), time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (TOF-SIMS) and 23Na nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR). The surfaces of… (More)
