Hydroxyethyl cellulose or Hydroxyethylcellulose

Hydroxy Ethyl Cellulose or Hydroxyethylcellulose or Hydroxyethyl cellulose or HEC is a gelling and thickening agent derived from cellulose. It is widely used in cosmetics, cleaning solutions, drilling mud additive, and other household products. Storage: Room Temperature (Recommended in a cool and dark place, <15C)

Hydroxyethyl Cellulose USP NF Grade Specifications:
Cellulose, 2-hydroxyethyl ether CAS 9004-62-0
UNII: 8136Y38GY5

Hydroxyethyl Cellulose is a partially substituted poly(hydroxyethyl) ether of cellulose. It is available in several grades, varying in viscosity and degree of substitution, and some grades are modified to improve their dispersion in water. It may contain suitable anticaking agents.

Sample solution: 1 g in 100 mL of water.
Analysis: Stir the Sample solution.
Acceptance criteria: It dissolves completely to produce a colloidal solution that remains clear when heated to 60°.
Sample: 1 mL of the solution from Identification test A.
Analysis: Place the Sample on a glass plate and allow to evaporate.
Acceptance criteria: A thin, self-sustaining film is formed.
Sample solution: 1 in 2000
Analysis: To 1 mL of the Sample solution add 1 mL of phenol solution (50 mg/mL), then add 5 mL of sulfuric acid, shake, and allow to cool.
Acceptance criteria: The color of the solution becomes orange.
Residue on Ignition: NMT 5.0%
Lead: NMT 10 µg/g
pH: 6.0–8.5 in 10 mg/mL solution
Loss on Drying: NMT 10.0%. Dry at 105° for 3 h.
Viscosity—Capillary Methods or Viscosity—Rotational Methods: When determined at the concentration and under the conditions specified in the labeling, its viscosity is NLT 50% and NMT 150% of the labeled viscosity, where stated as a single value, or it is between the maximum and minimum values, where stated as a range of viscosities.

Hydroxyethylcellulose BP Ph Eur Grade Specifications:
CAS 9004-62-0
Action and use: Excipient.

Partly O-(2-hydroxyethylated) cellulose.

Appearance: White, yellowish-white or greyish-white powder or granules.
Solubility: Soluble in hot and cold water giving a colloidal solution, practically insoluble in acetone, in ethanol (96 per cent) and in toluene.

A. Heat 10 mL of solution S (see Tests) to boiling. The solution remains clear.
B. To 10 mL of solution S add 0.3 mL of dilute acetic acid and 2.5 mL of a 100 g/L solution of tannic acid. A yellowish-white, flocculent precipitate is formed which dissolves in dilute ammonia.
C. In a test-tube about 160 mm in length, thoroughly mix 1 g with 2 g of finely powdered manganese sulfate. Introduce to a depth of 2 cm into the upper part of the tube a strip of filter paper impregnated with a freshly prepared mixture of 1 volume of a 200 g/L solution of diethanolamine and 11 volumes of a 50 g/L solution of sodium nitroprusside, adjusted to about pH 9.8 with 1 M hydrochloric acid. Insert the tube 8 cm into a silicone-oil bath and heat at 190-200C. The filter paper becomes blue within 10 min. Carry out a blank test.
D. Dissolve 0.2 g completely, without heating, in 15 mL of a 700 g/L solution of sulfuric acid. Pour the solution while stirring into 100 mL of iced water and dilute to 250 mL with iced water. In a test-tube, mix thoroughly while cooling in iced water 1 mL of the solution with 8 mL of sulfuric acid, added dropwise. Heat on a water-bath for exactly 3 min and immediately cool in iced water. While the mixture is cold, carefully add 0.6 mL of ninhydrin solution and mix well. Allow it to stand at 25°C. A pink colour is produced immediately and does not become violet within 100 min.

Solution S: Disperse a quantity of the substance to be examined equivalent to 1.0 g of the dried substance in 50 mL of carbon dioxide-free water. After 10 min, dilute to 100 mL with carbon dioxide-free water and stir until dissolution is complete.
pH: 5.5 to 8.5 for solution S.
Apparent viscosity: 75 per cent to 140 per cent of the value stated on the label.
Chlorides: Maximum 1.0 per cent.
Nitrates: Maximum 3.0 per cent (dried substance), if hydroxyethylcellulose has an apparent viscosity of 1000 mPa⋅s or less and maximum 0.2 per cent (dried substance), if hydroxyethylcellulose has an apparent viscosity of more than 1000 mPa⋅s.
Glyoxal: Maximum 20 ppm.
Ethylene oxide: ethylene oxide: maximum 1 ppm.
2-Chloroethanol: 2-chloroethanol: not more than 0.5 times the area of the peak due to 2-chloroethanol in the chromatogram obtained with reference solution (b) (10 ppm).
Loss on drying: Maximum 10.0 %
Sulfated ash: Maximum 4.0 %

Fire Fighting Media and Instructions: Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical, or carbon dioxide. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. 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. 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.

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. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
