Describe the three very basic steps in tablet pressing as described in class:
- 1.) Powders fed into the dies
- 2.) Powders compressed between punches
- 3.) Tablets ejected from the dies
Describe a rotary tablet press:
Compression rolls move over upper and lower punches compressing tablets in the dies
What three methods are available for making the tablet granulation for compressed tablets?
- Direct compression
- Dry granulation
- Wet granulation
What is the purpose of the wet and dry granulation processes?
To improve the flow of and compressibility of powders that would otherwise be unsuitable for compression
What ways can you improve the flow and compressibility of powders that would otherwise be unsuitable for tablet compression?
Wet and dry granulation
Describe direct granulation:
process of compression of mixed powders into a tablet without intermediate granulation steps
Name the five direct compression diluents discussed in class:

- Microcrystalline cellulose
- calcium sulfate
- dibasic calcium phosphate
- starch 1500
What are the advantages of direct compression?
- Less expensive
- No heat or moisture used
- Increased surface area for rapid dissolution
- More stable tablets
