Microcrystalline Cellulose, white powder, revolutionized tableting because of its unique compressibility and carrying capacity. It exhibits excellent properties as an excipient for solid dosage forms. It compacts well under minimum compression pressures, has high binding capability and creates tablets that are extremely hard, stable, yet disintegrate rapidly. Other advantages include low friability, inherent lubricity, and the highest dilution potential of all binders. These properties make Microcrystalline Cellulose particularly valuable as a filler and binder for formulations prepared by direct compression, although it is also used in wet or dry granulation.

Microcrystalline cellulose Function and Application:
1 .Microcrystalline cellulose in pharma
microcrystalline cellulose is often used as adsorbents, suspending agents, diluents and disintegrating agents.
microcrystalline cellulose is widely used in the pharmaceutical preparation,
mainly as diluents and adhesives in oral tablets and capsules.
It can be used for wet granulation as well as direct compression by dry method.
It has some lubrication and disintegration action so is very useful in tablet preparation.
2. Microcrystalline cellulose in Food Industry
In the food industry, microcrystalline cellulose used as a texturizer, an anti-caking agent, a fat substitute, an emulsifier, an extender, and a bulking agent in food production.
The most common form is used in vitamin supplements or tablets.
3.Microcrystalline cellulose In Cosmetics
As an ingredient, microcrystalline cellulose can be used in the production of various kinds of cosmetics,
skin care and treatment products and detergents.
