Photophobic (white) films were prepared by mixing hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) of different molecular weights with sodium citrate (SC). Wide angle X-ray diffractometry, small angle X-ray scattering, scanning electron microscopy, dynamic mechanical analysis, whiteness determination and texture analysis were used to investigate the effect of HPMC molecular weight on the aggregation structures and properties of HPMC film. The crystalline integrity decreased with the increased molecular weight of HPMC for these HPMC/SC films. Similar crystallinity was observed for 6HPMC/SC and 15HPMC/SC, which was larger than that of 50HPMC/SC. All the three HPMC/SC film showed surface fractal structure with similar D. With the increasing molecular weight of HPMC, the HPMC/SC film showed honeycomb structures with smaller holes and more compact porous structure, T first increased and then decreased a little, the tensile strength and elongation increased with the increasing HPMC molecular weight. 50HPMC/SC films with the smallest pores showed the largest whiteness. A new T' peak was observed for HPMC/SC film.

Polymeric compounds that contain repeating units of hydroxypropyl methylcellulose. The properties of hypromellose polymers can vary greatly and are defined by their molecular weight, the percentage of hydroxyl groups, the percentage of hydroxypropyl groups, and viscosity measurements. They are found a broad variety of commercial products such as FOOD ADDITIVES; EXCIPIENTS; and LUBRICANTS.
A group of atoms or molecules attached to other molecules or cellular structures and used in studying the properties of these molecules and structures. Radioactive DNA or RNA sequences are used in MOLECULAR GENETICS to detect the presence of a complementary sequence by NUCLEIC ACID HYBRIDIZATION.
Methylester of cellulose. Methylcellulose is used as an emulsifying and suspending agent in cosmetics, pharmaceutics and the chemical industry. It is used therapeutically as a bulk laxative.
Models used experimentally or theoretically to study molecular shape, electronic properties, or interactions; includes analogous molecules, computer-generated graphics, and mechanical structures.
Heparin fractions with a molecular weight usually between 4000 and 6000 kD. These low-molecular-weight fractions are effective antithrombotic agents. Their administration reduces the risk of hemorrhage, they have a longer half-life, and their platelet interactions are reduced in comparison to unfractionated heparin. They also provide an effective prophylaxis against postoperative major pulmonary embolism.
