Mimosa pudica seed mucilage: isolation; characterization and evaluation as tablet disintegrant and binder. 

In the present study, Mimosa pudica seed mucilage was isolated, characterized and evaluated as a tablet binder and disintegrant. Several properties of mucilage like high swelling index and gelling nature prompted us to explore its applications as disintegrating and binding agent. M. pudica seed mucilage is a potential tablet disintegrant and binder.
