Physicochemical Properties of Hydroxyethyl Cellulose

Physicochemical Properties of Hydroxyethyl Cellulose
Abstract Cellulose based polymers have shown tremendous potential as drug delivery carrier for oral drug delivery system (DDS). Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) and hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC) are widely explored as excipients to improve the solubility of poorly water soluble drugs and to improve self-life of dosage form. Keywords: Hydroxyethyl cellulose; Hydroxypropyl cellulose; XRD; DSC; TGA; Biofield treatment; Abbreviation:HEC: Hydroxyethyl Cellulose; HPC: Hydroxypropyl Cellulose; XRD: X-ray Diffraction Study; DSC: Differential Scanning Calorimetry; TGA: Thermogravimetric Analysis; DTA: Differential Thermal Analysis; DDS: Drug Delivery System Introduction The oral route is by far the most preferred and convenient route for delivery of many pharmaceutically active drugs.

Magnesium XRD Analysis- Effect of Energy Treatment Abstract Magnesium (Mg), present in every cell of all living organisms, is an essential nutrient and primarily responsible for catalytic reaction of over 300 enzymes. The aim of present study was to evaluate the effect of biofield treatment on atomic and physical properties of magnesium powder. Magnesium powder was divided into two parts denoted as control and treatment. Control part was remained as untreated and treatment part received biofield treatment. Both control and treated magnesium samples were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), surface area and particle size analyzer.
