Cross Carmellose Sodium (CCS)

Molecular Structure of Sodium Starch Glyoclate Croscarmellose sodium occurs as an odorless, white or grayish white powder.



Croscarmellose Sodium is used in oral pharmaceutical formulations as a disintegrant for capsules, tablets, and granules.

In tablet formulations, croscarmellose sodium may be used in both direct-compression and wet-granulation processes. When used in wet granulations, the croscarmellose sodium should be added in both the wet and dry stages of the process (intra- and extragranularly) so that the wicking and swelling ability of the disintegrant is best utilized.

Croscarmellose sodium at concentrations up to 5% w/w may be used as a tablet disintegrant, although normally 2% w/w is used in tablets prepared by direct compression and 3% w/w in tablets prepared by a wet-granulation process.
