    In the pharmaceutical manufacturing, drug release behavior development is remained as one of the main challenges to improve the drug effectiveness. Recently, more focus has been done on using mesoporous silica materials as drug carriers for prolonged and superior control of drug release in human body. In this study, release behavior of paracetamol is developed using drug-loaded KCC-1-NH2 mesoporous silica, based on direct compaction method for preparation of tablets. The purpose of this study is to investigate the utilizing of pure KCC-1 mesoporous silica (KCC-1) and amino functionalized KCC-1 (KCC-1-NH2) as drug carriers in oral solid dosage formulations compared to common excipient, microcrystalline cellulose (MCC), to improve the control of drug release rate by manipulating surface chemistry of the carrier. Different formulations of KCC-1 and KCC-NH2 are designed to investigate the effect of functionalized mesoporous silica as carrier on drug controlled-release rate. The results displayed the remarkable effect of KCC-1-NH2 on drug controlled-release in comparison with the formulation containing pure KCC-1 and formulation including MCC as reference materials. The pure KCC-1 and KCC-1-NH2 are characterized using different evaluation methods such as FTIR, SEM, TEM and N2 adsorption analysis.
