By Nuttall, P.Austin.
The operation of dividing substances, so as to reduce them to powder. Most drugs are reduced to powder by persons who make it a special business, and who are called drug grinders. This is done on a large scale in drug mills; and the implements used are the grinding mill and the stamping mill. In the shop of the apothecary, pulverization is effected by the pestle and mortar, and the sieve. Where substances require the addition of other bodies to facilitate their reduction to powder, -as where camphor needs a few drops of alcohol- the process is called pulverization by mediation.
