1.What is the Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose ?

Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose (HPMC) is a gum formed by the reaction of propylene oxide and methyl chloride with alkali cellulose. Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose is white to off-white powder, while it's Molecular Formula is C3H7O*. Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (HPMC; CAS No. 9004-65-3) is an odorless and tasteless, white to slightly off-white, fibrous or granular, free-flowing powder that is a synthetic modification of the natural polymer, cellulose. HPMC is approved by FDA as both a direct and an indirect food additive, and is approved for use as a food additive by the EU. The JECFA has evaluated the food uses of HPMC and established an acceptable daily intake (ADI) of ‘not specified’ for such uses.

5.What is Hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose (9004-65-3) used for?

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) is the most important hydrophilic carrier material used for the preparation of oral controlled drug delivery systems. One of its most important characteristics is the high swellability, which has a significant effect on the release kinetics of an incorporated drug. HPMC is a propylene glycol ether of methylcellulose. The overall drug release mechanism from HPMC-based pharmaceutical devices strongly depends on the design (composition and geometry) of the particular delivery system.
