Vplyv technologických vlastností suchého extraktu na vlastnosti tabliet
Salidroside, as a chemical compound from the group of phenylpropanoids, and rosavin are used for the standardization of dry extracts from the underground stem and root of Rhodiola rosea. In this study we monitored two different extracts from Rhodiola rosea, which differ in content of active compounds, colour, technological and physico-chemical properties (e.g. flow properties). These extracts were mixed with excipients and the flow characteristics of mixture – bulk volume and tapped volume – were determined. After formulating the tablets by compression, qualitative parameters like disintegration, resistance to crushing, friability, mass uniformity and texturometric parameters were tested. Also, dissolution profiles were evaluated using first order kinetic model, Korsmeyer-Peppas model and Weibull model for correlation. In some formulations, the impact of the properties of dry extracts on various technological properties of final tablets was more marked. We suggest that in case of a higher extract:excipients ratio, these properties manifest themselves by an even higher impact.
