The current work aims to investigate the sudden drop of dissolution with respect to higher compression pressure and hardness of tablet with a good and comparative less significant disintegration time and to understand an affect of pressure on drug with respect to compression behavior on dissolution and other properties. Where Cefuroxime Axetil was compressed at different pressure in form of pellets and tablets using hydraulic press and compression machine respectively, and characterized to understand any physical and chemical change using X-ray powder diffraction, differential scanning calorimetry, and Dissolution and Scanning Electron microscopy. Scanning electron microscopy studies of pellets revealed that the change in surface morphology from opaque to translucent clear with increase in breaking force, these different pressure compressed pellets were subjected to uniform reduction of particle size. The similarity factor f2 values of drug release profile were comparably same. The breaking force and pellet hardness had indicated a very firm intrinsic binding force exist with Cefuroxime Axetil, study had investigated the decrease in-vitro dissolution is marked by the compact binding property of individual particles of Cefuroxime Axetil between the excipient due to the increase in compression force.
