Diametrical Elastic Relaxation During Ejection of lactose-cocoa binary tablets


Anuar, Mohd Shamsul and Mohd Tahir, Suraya and Mohamad, N. S. and Abu Bakar, N. (2013) Diametrical Elastic Relaxation During Ejection of lactose-cocoa binary tablets. Particulate Science and Technology, 31 (2). pp. 186-189. ISSN 0272-6351


This work investigates the diametrical elastic relaxation of a compacted binary powder mixture of lactose and cocoa. It has been observed that the addition of lactose improved the mechanical strength of the binary tablets at the higher compaction stresses used in this study. The tablets having the maximum tensile strengths have relatively low diametrical elastic relaxations, similar to the pure cocoa tablets. Meanwhile, pure lactose tablets displayed increasing diametrical elastic relaxations as the compaction stress increased.
