Isolation and Characterization of Mucilage from Abroma augusta and its Application in Pharmaceutical Suspension Preparation

The purpose of the study is to formulate a new, cheap and effective natural suspending agent that can be used as a potential alternative for traditional suspending agents. This present study was concerned with the extraction of mucilage and its evaluation from A. augusta. The various physical, Physico-chemical and phytochemical properties of the mucilage were analyzed using standard procedures. Suspending properties is found to be the most desired properties of a pharmaceutical suspension preparation. Mucilage obtained from the species was assessed by observing particle size, flow rate, viscosity and pH.

Results: The mucilage obtained was found to be advantageous to use as a suspending agent in a suspension in a very cost effective manner.

Conclusion: The mucilage of A. augusta can be used as a potential suspending agent.
