Pharmaceutical Adsorbents Market: Introduction
Adsorption is a process in which molecules, ions or chemical species from fluid & solid are accumulated onto a surface. In adsorption, the surfaces on to which molecules are bonded are called as adsorbents. Adsorbents, through adsorption process, find application in several application such as such as in water purification, refineries, chemical, pharmaceuticals manufacturing and food processing, among others. In pharmaceutical industry, several type of pharmaceutical adsorbents are used whose selection is depend upon the process requirements. For instance, the activated carbon is used for the removal of contaminated or by product during drugs formulation process whereas activated alumina is used for recovery of Pyrogen free Drug and is used as a desiccant for the drying of air & industrial gases and as a fluoride & arsenic filter for drinking water. Also, Silica Gel as a pharmaceutical adsorbents is used in column chromatography wherein it is help for segregating or collecting different drugs components. This chromatography technique is also employed in medicine research, such as for sedatives, local anesthetics, analgesics, hypnotics, and steroids.
There are four main types of pharmaceutical adsorbents; Activated Alumina, Activated Carbon, polymeric adsorbent, and Silica Gel.
Pharmaceutical Adsorbents Market: Dynamics
