Abstract

This study aims to investigate the role of impact angles on the de-agglomeration performance of powders for inhalation. Agglomerates of a model drug mannitol were impacted at customized impaction throats containing two angles (15-75? and 45-45?) or a single angle (15?, 45? and 90?) using various air flow rates.
