Cellulose Ethers

CennloseTM cellulose ethers are water-soluble polymers derived from cellulose, the most abundant naturally available polymer. Cellulose unlike any other types of natural polymers, such as starch and gums, fails to dissolve in water. CennloseTM cellulose ethers when dissolved in water, offers a variety of functions such as thickening, surface activity, protective colloid, water retention, shape retention, etc. These functions can be used in a wide variety of industries.

For application in the pharmaceutical Divnova offers the following range of cellulose ethers under the CennloseTM brand:

Cellulose Ethers

Divnova CennloseTM Series Viscosity Range (mPa.s)
Methyl Cellulose (MC) 15 – 1,00,000
Ethyl Cellulose (EC) 5 – 300
Hydroxyethyl Cellulose (HEC) 800 – 20,000*
Hydroxyproxyl Cellulose (HHPC) 75 - 6500
Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) 400 – 1,00,000
Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose phthalate (HPMCP) 32 - 204

CennloseTM is used a variety of roles in the pharmaceutical ingredient with some specific applications such as intestine dissolving-coating material, stomach shellac, and eye-droplets. The primary functions of CennloseTM in the pharmaceutical industry are increasing bioavailability of a drug / formulation, acting as a drug delivery mechanism, and tablet formation. These functions are achieved by using the CennloseTM as a :

Apart from the properties of CennloseTM mentioned above, the range of cellulose ethers is also valued for reducing plasticizer use, improving appearance, plasticity, and superior quality.

The processes applied for manufacturing CennloseTM make the precision-matching possible, which is why our brand of cellulosic products are in abundant use in cosmetic and pharmaceutical products.


Poly-Vinyl-Pyrrolidone (PVP)

KammidonTM is a high molecular weight, water-soluble Poly-Viny- Pyrrolidone (PVP). The polymer has been developed using state-of-the-art technology and offers a broad range of applications. The versatility of the PVPs is due to spectrum of molecular weights that provide different benefits. The unique properties are correlated to the molecular weights which allows for broad range of selection choices for specific applications.

Divnova’s polyvinylpyrrolidone has been extensively in the pharmaceutical industry for various applications such as binder for tablets, capsules and granules, dissolving assistant for injections, flow-assistant for capsules, dispersant for liquid medicines and pigments, stabilizer for enzymes and heat-sensitive drugs, co-precipitant for increasing solubility of drugs, lubricator and anti-toxic for eye drug.

A summary of the properties of KammidonTM are:

  • Binding agent
  • Formulating agent
  • Film-forming agent
  • Solubilizing agent
  • Enzyme stabilizer
  • Dispersant
  • Thickener
  • Hydrophilizing agent

Our products are compliant with the FDA standards and quality requirements and we are continually striving to provide superior and consistent quality.top
