HPMC is a white to light yellow powder or granular product. HPMC is nearly insoluble in anhydrous ethanol, ethyl ether, and acetone. It is swelled in cold water to form a transparent or a slightly cloudy solution. HPMC can be dissolved in some organic solvents and also in water-organic solvent mixed solvents. The oversize product above 100 mesh should not exceed 5.0%.4. With the reduction of methoxyl groups content, HPMC is increased in gelling temperature and decreased in water solubility and surface activity. Resistance to salting out HPMC is a nonionic cellulose ether and it is not a polyelectrolyte. The aqueous solution of HPMC is comparatively stable even in the presence of metal salts or organic electrolytes. However, when the concentration of electrolytes exceeds a certain limit, gelation and precipitation may result. Surface activity an aqueous solution of HPMC has a high surface activity and functions as a protective colloid agent, emulsion stabilizer, and dispersant. Thermal gelation an aqueous solution of HPMC will gel or precipitate when heated to a certain temperature, but it reverts to the original solution state on subsequent cooling. The temperature at which gelation or precipitation occurs depends on the type of HPMC, its concentration and the rate of heating. pH stability the viscosity of an aqueous solution of HPMC is hardly affected by acid or alkali, and the product can develop an original viscosity in the range of 3.0~11.0.
Therefore, the solution viscosity tends to keep stable during prolonged storage. Water retention: HPMC is a highly effective water retention agent. Its pharmaceutical grade product can be widely used in food, cosmetics, and many other fields.
HPMC, a multipurpose additive for pharmaceutical, can be functioned a thickener, dispersant, emulsifier, film forming agent, etc. It is used in tablets for dressing and binding to improve solubility of the drugs and reinforce tablets’ water prevention function. It can also be utilized as a mixed suspending agent, additive for eye drops, sustained-release agent, and so on. HPMC can be widely used in the fields of detergent and cosmetics industries as thickener and emulsion stabilizer to improve the rheologic property.HPMC can be directly applied to food not only as an emulsifier, binder, thickener or stabilizer, but also as packing material.a) Thermal gelation and water retention of HPMC blocks oil absorption into food and moisture loss during drying, providing a fresh and crisp taste. Moreover, these properties aids in gas retention during baking for increasing baked volume and improving texture.b) In molding food, the excellent lubricity and binding strength will improve its moldability and shape retention.
