Abstract

The value of contact angle measurements on compressed discs of powder has been critically examined as a method of assessing the wettability of five barbiturate powders. The contact angle was found to reduce with increased compression force, until a constant value was achieved. This was demonstrated, by use of scanning electron micrographs, to be due to plastic deformation of the powder surface.
