The aim of this study was to formulate and characterization of dispersible tablet (Aceclofenac). Aceclofenac is a phenylacetic acid belongs to the group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It causes by inhibition of COX-2 and prostaglandin E2(PGE2) synthesis in blood mononuclear and polymorphonuclear cells.It used as anti-rheumatic, anti-inflammatory (both acute and chronic),analgesic (effective pain killer in lower backache, dental or gynecological pain) and antipyretic. In present study, disintegrants(crospovidone and sodium starch glycolate) with are used. Evaluation of different batches of tablets  by  thickness, weigh variation, hardness, friability, drug content uniformity, wetting time, water absorption ratio, in-vitro disintegration time and in-vitro drug release. Quantitative analyzes of aceclofenac by UV-Spectrophotometry, High Performance Liqud Chromatography (HPLC) and Mass Spectroscopy. Three formulation patterns were used for in-vitro drug release study.

Keywords-Aceclofenac, crospovidone, sodium starch glycolate, in-vitro disintegration time
