About the Project

This project aims to identify critical material attributes and critical process parameters for powder flow of pharmaceutical powders during tablet manufacturing.  Specific tasks for this project include but not limited to undertake critical literature review to understand the background, the state-of-the-art and the challenges, and to identify the knowledge gap; to carry out experimental investigation to understand how cohesion and permeability of pharmaceutical formulations affect powder flow, and to explore the influence of powder properties and process conditions on powder flow behaviourduring pharmaceutical tablet manufacturing.
