Abstract

Plasticizers have got significant role in pharmaceutical formulations because of their vital importance in the formulations like gastro-retentive films, ocular films, transdermal films, buccal films, oro-dispersible films. Flexibility, Endurance, Resistibility and Stability which are suitable properties of formulation could be easily achieved by using plasticizers which ultimately imparted desired characteristic in the formulation by the radical use of this excipient. In this review an effort was made to disclose importance, theories and plasticizers mechanism in different novel pharmaceutical formulations to understand its versatility efficiency, utility and tendency to modified different novel pharmaceutical formulations. 

Keywords: Modification, Formulations, Plasticizers, Films.
