Physical Properties:-
HPMC appears to be white powder and is odorless and tasteless. It is featured by hygroscopicity and hardly soluble in hot water, acetone, ethanol and toluene. In cold water HPMC will swell into colloidal solution and its solybility is not influenced by PH value. Similar to hydroxy cellulose while being added to Hdroxyethyl groups. HPMC is more resistant to saline, easily soluble in water and has higher gel temperature.
