Abstract: This study aimed at evaluating Musa paradisiaca (banana peel) pectin as a pharmaceutical excipients (binder) in ciprofloxacin tablet formulation. The banana peel pectin was extracted from the peel of Musa paradisiaca (banana). The granules formulated were evaluated for micromeritic properties. The granules were then compressed to tablets at a compression pressure of 30N/m2. The resulting ciprofloxacin tablets were evaluated for hardness, friability and disintegration time, in vitro dissolution studies and release kinetics. The extracted banana peel pectin was found to contain the following phytochemicals – flavonoids, tannins, carbohydrates, reducing sugar, saponins, alkaloids, phytosteroids and glycosides.
