Croscarmellose Sodium


  • Croscarmellose sodium is a pharmaceutical excipient used in tablet formulations. It acts as a superdisintegrant, rapidly breaking down tablets upon contact with moisture to promote faster drug release and absorption in the body.


  • Croscarmellose sodium is primarily used as a superdisintegrant in tablet formulations.
  • It is applied in various types of tablets, including immediate-release tablets, chewable tablets, and orally disintegrating tablets.
  • Croscarmellose sodium achieves this by swelling and generating internal pressure, leading to the fragmentation of tablets into smaller particles.
  • Its compatibility with different drug substances and ability to enhance dissolution make it a valuable ingredient in pharmaceutical formulations.
