In modern drug technology excipients fulfill many important roles: antiadherents, binders, disintegrants, fillers, flavours, lubricants, etc. They can modify many properties of tablets including disintegration time, substance release place (stomach, intestine) and time (fast or slow release, non-modified), improvement of taste and flavor, etc. There are many scientific reports that can help choose suitable excipients to produce tablets that have desired properties. That paper was created to arrange knowledge about them.
