Cellulose ethers are the most commonly used polymers in hydrophilic matrix controlled-release systems. The molecular weight of the cellulose ethers dictates the drug-release properties of the final product.
By carefully adjusting the chain length of the polymer, formulators can create their desired final product. The solubility-level of the drug that needs to be released determines the most suitable Headcel grade.
The following Headcel products are suitable for pharmaceutical applications:
