Basic Info

What is Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose?

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (INN) is an abbreviation for hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC). It is a semi synthetic, inert, viscoelastic polymer used in eye drops, as well as an excipient and controlled release component in oral medications. It is present in various commercial products.

As a food additive, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is an emulsifier, thickener, and suspension agent, and a substitute for animal gelatin. Its Codex Alimentarius code (E number) is E464.

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose is a solid with a light gray white to beige powder appearance, which can form particles. The compound forms a colloid when dissolved in water. This non-toxic component is flammable and can react violently with oxidants.

Hydroxypropyl methylcellulose in aqueous solution shows the same thermal gel characteristics as methyl cellulose. That is to say, when the solution is heated to the critical temperature, it condenses into a non flowing but semi flexible substance. Usually, the critical (condensation) temperature is inversely proportional to the concentration of HPMC solution and the intramolecular methoxy group concentration of HPMC (which in turn depends on the degree of methoxy substitution and molar substitution). That is, the higher the concentration of methoxy groups, the lower the critical temperature. However, the inflexibility/viscosity of the obtained substance is directly related to the concentration of methoxy groups (the higher the concentration, the more viscous or less flexible the obtained substance is)
