This work examines modern pharmaceutical compacting techniques used to form tablets from powders. It describes the physical structure of pharmaceutical compacts, the bonding phenomena that occur during powder compaction, and the compression mechanisms of pharmaceutical particles. Fundamental theories of compaction are covered; questions of dominating bond types are investigated; and the bonding area between particles in pharmaceutical compacts is analyzed.
