  • Abstract

    The enhancement of dissolution rate and oral bioavailability is one of the greatest challenges in the development of poorly water soluble drugs. So, solid dispersion is an efficient tool for increasing the oral bioavailability and dissolution rate of a range of hydrophobic drugs. Solid dispersion is used to produce a homogeneous distribution of a small amount of drug in solid state. This article reviews the various preparation techniques of solid dispersion and compiles some of the recent technologies. This article summarize some of the practical aspects for the preparation of solid dispersion like selection of carrier ,method of physicochemical characterization, their advantages, limitations and applications along with an insight into the molecular arrangement of drug in solid dispersion. Solid dispersion technique is widely used to study various approaches and applications of drug properties and polymers used in pharmaceutical research. Hence, solid dispersion is a very useful method for pharmaceutical point of view because of its capability to solve the solubility problems by using solid dispersion method.
