Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, abbreviated as HPMC, is a variety of nonionic cellulose mixed ethers. It is a semi-synthetic, inactive, viscoelastic polymer that is often used in ophthalmology as a lubricant or as an excipient or excipient in oral medications and is found in a wide variety of commodities.
In addition, as a food additive, hypromellose can play the following roles: emulsifiers, thickeners, suspending agents, and animal gelatin substitutes.
HPMC is a highly pure cotton cellulose as raw material, under alkaline conditions by special etherification and preparation.White or whitish powder.HPMC decreases with the decrease of methoxide content, increase of gel point, decrease of water solubility and decrease of surface activity.
HPMC is odorless, tasteless,non-toxic cellulose ethers produce from natural high molecular cellulose through series of chemical processing and achieved.It is white powder with good water solubility. It has thickening, adhesion ,dispersing, emulsifying, film, suspended, adsorption, gel,and protectiv
