There are number of synthetic polymers are available in market for pharmaceutical formulation , but these synthetic polymers have certain disadvantages such as high cost, toxicity, environmental pollution during synthesis, non-renewable sources, side effects, and poor patient compliance. Because of these disadvantages natural polymers such as natural gums and mucilage are preferred to semi synthetic and synthetic excipients because of the following advantages :such as: low cost and natural origin, free from side effects, biocompatible and bio-acceptable, renewable source, environmental friendly processing, local availability etc. Natural gums and mucilages are available in nature freely. These natural gums and mucilages were successfully used in various dosage forms.
Mucilage, Gums, Biocompatible.
