NREP/ Taste Masking in drugs

New Reverse Enteric Polymer (NREP) is a cationic ter-polymer which is responsive to changes in pH. It is hydrophobic and hence insoluble in water. Their main use would be for taste masking of drugs and designing custom release profiles in drug formulations.

Sector: Chemicals
Country: India
Area of Application:
· Use as excipient
· Delivery of drugs
· Taste masking
· Coatings for moisture barrier, sustained release and rapid release
· Polymorphism inhibition
