Naturalne i syntetyczne polimery w technologii tabletek z suchych wyciągów roślinnych
Natural and synthetic polymers in the technology of tablets from dry herbal extracts
Out of current research results, that there is possibility of the assessment of the usefulness of natural polymers (chitosan, microcrystalline cellulose) and synthetic ones (polyvinylpyrrolidone, acrylic acid polymers) and applying them in connection with dry herbal extracts to obtain tablets mass. Dry extracts were assessed from certain herbal materials: Equisetum arvense L., Solidago virgaurea L., Zingiber officinale Rosc. To each tablets Equisetum arvense L. and Solidago virgaurea L. additionally was introduced zinc hydrogenaspartate, which role was to supplement deficiency of well absorbable microelement in form of chelate. Carried our research present certain results: obtained tablets fulfill standards of Polish Pharmacopoeia (PP VII), used both natural and synthetic polymers affect controlled release of active substances in tablets.
Keywords: tablets, dry extracts, active substances, controlled release.
