The present article is trying to present an investigation is to extract the mucilage from the petals of flower of Hibiscus rosasinensis and use it in a paracetamol tablets as a binder. As the mucilage having granulating and binding properties so it is used in tablets, using paracetamol as a model drug. The Ph of mucilage was found to be 6.5 and all the physicochemical properties i.e. solubility and swelling index was studied. In this investigation wet granulation technique is used for the formation of granules using the above described mucilage which having the concentration of 2%, 5% and 7% w/v to use as a binder.’
