Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) or Hypromellose is a hydrophilic (water soluble), biodegradable, and biocompatible chemically modified cellulose polymer. It belongs to the cellulose ethers group in which hydroxyl groups have been replaced with one or more of the three hydroxyl groups present in the cellulose ring.
HPMC is soluble in polar organic solvents, which makes it viable to use in both aqueous and nonaqueous solvents. It is soluble in hot as well as cold organic solvents. It has better organo-solubility and thermo-plasticity in comparison to other methylcellulose counterparts. When heated with gelation between 75–90 degrees Celsius, it forms a gel. In a powder state, it is off-white in colour and considered safe to consume. It has a density of 1.39 g/cm3. As a solid, it is flammable and incompatible with strong oxidants. It is almost not soluble in absolute ethanol, acetone, and ether. It has a high solubility in water and other solvents, like propanol, ethanol, etc.
It has a discolouration temperature between 190-200 ? and a Carbonization temperature between 280-300 ?. Other properties of HPMC include cohesion, water retention capacity, pH stability, dimensional stability, salt-resistant low ash powder, thickening ability, excellent film-forming ability, and extensive enzyme resistance.
HPMC is used in various applications, including drug delivery, dyes and paints, cosmetics, adhesives, coatings, agriculture, and textiles which is driving its market demand. Owing to its high viscosity, it is usually used in ophthalmic preparations as artificial tears for dry eyes. In the construction industry, it serves as a great adhesive material, water-retaining agent and retarder of cement mortar. It works like a thickener, stabilizer, and dispersant in the coatings industry. As a dispersant, it finds use for producing polyvinyl chloride.
It is also used in end-user applications such as ink printing, as an adhesive in the manufacture of ceramic products, in the plastic industry as a lubricant and softener, etc. It is commonly used as a gluten alternative in gluten-free food; as a gelatin replacement; to preserve fruit and vegetable preservation, leather, paper products and the textile industry.
