Hypromellose acetate succinate (HPMCAS) is an enteric coating material, obtained from Shin‐Etsu chemical, whose acetyl and succinyl group contents are 8% and 15%, respectively. HPMCAS is commonly used in oral therapeutic formulations as a film coating for tablets or granules. It exhibits high solubility through solid dispersion. It is insoluble in gastric fluid but swell and dissolves rapidly in the upper intestine. It is used alone or in combination with soluble or insoluble binders in the preparation of granules with persistent drug-release properties such as controlled-release agents, film-forming agents, enteric coating agents, sustained-release agent, functional category, the release rate is pH-dependent and solubility enhancing agent.
