Abstract

NATURAL POLYMERS: AS PHARMACEUTICAL EXCIPIENTS AND THEIR APPLICATIONS IN DIFFERENT PHARMACEUTICAL FORMULATIONS - A REVIEW

Saurabh Dilip Bhandare*, Ekta Kavade and Sunita Surse

ABSTRACT

Advances in polymer science have led to the development of novel drug delivery systems which include: microspheres, nanoparticles, tablets, gels, transdermal patches, dermal patches, implants, noisome, and liposomes. Few polymers are obtained from natural resources, while the remaining are chemically synthesized and used. Therefore a large number of natural and synthetic polymers are presently available as a pharmaceutical excipients. But today, the extensive research in natural polymeric materials have gained focused and a growing attention; due to the interest in their eminent contribution to a number of pharmaceutically important factors like: relative abundance, economic, nontoxic, bio-degradable and eco-friendly nature; which makes it suitable for pharmaceutical industries to use them in variety of formulation and to develop a cost effective and economic dosage forms. Also their applicability in sustain and control release dosage forms have proved them to be a boon in the pharmaceutical and research sectors; to develop sustain and control release dosage forms. Owing to this potential applications of natural polymer in the field of pharmaceutical science, cosmetics, research, and other allied sciences, it becomes essential to emphasized on natural polymers as a pharmaceutical excipients. Thus in the present paper, natural polymers obtained from plants sources are evidently emphasized.

Keywords: Natural Polymer, Pharmaceutical Excipient, Natural Gums and Mucilage.
