ABSTRACT:
In the recent decades, there has been considerable interest in using Carbopol as an excipient in a diverse range of pharmaceutical applications. Carbopol polymers are polymers of acrylic acid cross-linked with polyalkenyl ethers or divinyl glycol. The Carbopol polymer family is based on cross linked acrylic acid chemistry. The products are cross linked at different levels providing a portfolio of functionally diverse performance options. Carbopol polymers are efficient and effective rheology modifiers. They provide excellent thickening, suspension and stabilization benefits.
KEYWORDS:
Carbopol, rheology modifier.
