Application

(Hydroxypropyl)methyl cellulose acts as a thickener for aqueous and non-aqueous systems, is a water retention aid and steric stabilizer, and clear films with grease resistance. (Hydroxypropyl)methyl cellulose has been used to study mucoadhesion in the design of drug delivery systems to prolong intestinal residence time and has also been used to study the enhancement of dissolution rate of poorly water soluble drugs.
Thickener for aqueous and non-aqueous systems, clear films with grease resistance, binders, lubricants, steric stabilizer and water retention aid.

Features and Benefits

Dissolves in water, undergoes reversible gelation upon heating, non-ionic, does not complex with ionic species and is surface active and enzyme resistant. Solutions are pseudoplastic.
