The study has been designed to develop a delayed release matrix tablets by
using various natural polymers. The polsaccharide Pectin was used in the
formulation Vs. Xanthan gum and Guar gum. The performance of Pectin
Vs. other conventional polysaccharides was demonstrated in this work. A
model drug Propranolol HCl was incorporated in the formulation design in
order to access the drug release profile.
