Excipients play an important role in formulating dosage forms. Exertion is empowered to help manufacture, provide, or collect dosage forms. Although considered pharmacological, excipients may consider a drug, due to chemical or physical interactions with the composition of the drug. Excipients have many functions in pharmaceutical dosage forms, including enhancing active ingredients in dosage forms, assisting active ingredients, disintegration, lubricants, binders, and suppliers. Each excipient has different characteristics. In this review, a library of studios is provided relating to the function, function, and content of solid excipients in a solid sedan. Various choices can be used on different compositions; resulting, this difference is also different. In this example, describe the types of excipients that can be used for various components in solid preparations that can be used in the formulation of solid preparations and select the right type of excipient according to the character of the desired solid preparation. In this review also presented a method, combining in and characterizing solid excipients to see the quality. The most commonly used methods for analysis of solid excipients are flow properties, compressibility index, Hausner index ratios, and angle of repose, while the instrumentation commonly used is Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), H and C-Nucleo magnetic resonance (H-CNMR), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Particle size analysis (PSA), X-ray diffraction (XRDP) and Differential scanning calorimeter (DSC).
