Short Communications


In ordered mixing it is assumed that mixing very different amounts of two materials is improved by adsorption of small particles onto large carrier particles. This hypothesis could be confirmed with tablets of 120 mg containing 0.1 mg digitoxin, prepared by dry coating of particles.
