Docusate Sodium: A Multifunctional Excipient for Drug Bioavailability Improvement


Docusate sodium has been used as a pharmaceutical grade excipient for a long time thanks to its unique and versatile properties: wetting agent for poorly soluble APIs, tablet disintegration accelerator, dispersing agent for micro suspensions and emulsifier for creams and gels.

Continuous research is now also exposing its strong performance in advanced solubalization techniques. 


This presentation will highlight new applications of Docusate Sodium for drug bioavailability challenges

* Re-explore its wetting, dispersing, and emulsifying properties 

* Research and demonstrate new applications as an excipient for poorly soluble APIs

* Docusate as counter-ion for biopharmaceutical formulation development.
