Manufacturing of New Formulations of Ferrous Fumerate by Direct Compression Method
In the present study new formulations of Ferrous Fumerate was manufactured by direct compression method using Talc, magnesium stearate. The present study is divided into two phases. In the first phase new formulation of Ferrous Fumerate was prepared by direct compression method . In the 2nd phase of present study new formulation is evaluated for their average weight variation, friability, hardness and other parameters like disintegration. The results showed that all parameters of new formulations are in accordance with the BP/USP limits ands. Weight variation, thickness, disintegration, are in accordance with BP/USP limits but hardness and friability was not in compliance with BP/USP limits.
