Abstract:  Sorbents are used for a variety of purposes in pharmaceutical dosage forms. They are agents that will either allow substances to stick or adhere to them (adsorbents) or to migrate into their physical structure (absorbents). They are commonly used as carriers, reservoirs, sequestrants, and even filter and clarifying aids. Interestingly, they can be used as either excipients or active pharmaceutical ingredients.
