Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose or Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose or HPMC is non-ionic cellulose ether made from natural cotton fiber under series of chemical processing. It’s odorless, tasteless and non-toxic white powder, can be dissolved in cold water to form a transparent viscous solution with the properties of thickening, binding, dispersing, emulsifying, film coating, suspending, absorbing, gelling, water retention and colloid protection. HPMC 5CPS and HPMC 15CPS are more common grades.

Allow the slurry to cool to 10C and stir using a magnetic stirrer: a clear or slightly turbid solution occurs with its thickness dependent on the viscosity grade.
C. To 0.1 mL of the solution obtained in identification test B add 9 mL of a 90 per cent V/V solution of sulfuric acid, shake, heat on a water-bath for exactly 3 min, immediately cool in an ice-bath, carefully add 0.6 mL of a 20 g/L solution of ninhydrin, shake and allow to stand at 25C: a red colour develops at first and changes to purple within 100 min.

Specifications of Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose FCC Food Grade:
Propylene Glycol Ether of Methylcellulose; Modified Cellulose, HPMC
INS: 464 CAS: [9004-65-3]
Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose occurs as a white to off-white, fibrous powder or as granules. It is the propylene glycol ether of methylcellulose in which both the hydroxypropyl and the methyl groups are attached to the anhydroglucose rings of cellulose by ether linkages. Several product types are available that are defined by varying combinations of methoxyl and hydroxypropoxyl content. It is soluble in water and in certain organic solvent systems. Aqueous solutions are surface active, form films upon drying, and undergo a reversible transformation from sol to gel upon heating and cooling, respectively.
Function: Thickening agent; stabilizer; emulsifier.
A. Add 1 g of sample to 100 mL of water. It swells and disperses to form a clear to opalescent, mucilaginous solution, depending on the intrinsic viscosity, which is stable in the presence of most electrolytes.
B. Add 1 g of sample to 100 mL of boiling water, and stir the mixture. A slurry forms that when cooled to 20C, dissolves to form a clear or opalescent, mucilaginous solution.
C. Pour a few milliliters of the solution prepared for Identification Test B onto a glass plate and allow the water to evaporate. A thin, self-sustaining film forms.
Assay for Hydroxypropoxyl Groups: Between a minimum of 3.0% and a maximum of 12.0% of hydroxypropoxyl groups (-OCH2CHOHCH3), within the range claimed by the vendor for any product type.
Assay for Methoxyl Groups: Between a minimum of 19.0% and a maximum of 30.0% of methoxyl groups (-OCH3), within the range claimed by the vendor for any product type.
Lead: Not more than 3 mg/kg.
Loss on Drying: Not more than 5.0%.
Residue on Ignition: Not more than 1.5% for products with viscosities of 50 centipoises or above; not more than 3.0% for products with viscosities below 50 centipoises.
Viscosity: The viscosity of an aqueous solution containing 2 g of sample per 100 g of solution is not less than 80.0% and not more than 120.0% of that stated on the label for viscosity types of 100 centipoises or less, and not less than 75.0% and not more than 140.0% of that stated on the label for viscosity types higher than 100 centipoises.

At high temperatures under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes.
Section 6: Accidental Release Measures
Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Ensure adequate ventilation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Restrict unprotected personnel from the area. Prevent any contact with hot surfaces. Do not approach facing the wind. Do not touch the spilled material.
Environmental precautions: Do not let the product enter drains, soil or water sources.
Methods and materials used for containment Cleanup procedures and Storage:
Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to legal requirements.
Large Spill: Contain spilled material. Do not inhale vapors, mist, or gas. Avoid dust formation. Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow to evacuate as per law.
Section 7: Handling and Storage
Precautions for safe handling: Apply according to good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices. Ensure proper ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not drink, eat or smoke while handling. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Minimize dust generation. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Prevent any contact with hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in cool, dry and ventilated area away from heat sources and protected from sunlight in tightly closed original container. Keep air contact to a minimum. Do not leave the material container open. Store protected from heat, sparks and ignition sources and incompatible materials. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust/mist/vapor. Do not store with incompatible materials like oxidizing agents, acids.
Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection
Exposure Guidelines: This product does not contain any hazardous materials with occupational exposure limits established by the region-specific regulatory bodies.
Engineering Controls: Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
