Abstract: Eudragit RL (ERL) and RS (ERS) are polymethacrylate co-polymers, used in film coating of sustained release dosage forms, possessing some hydrophilic properties due to the presence of quaternary ammonium groups (QAG), where ERL contains more of such groups, hence more permeable, than ERS. However, because these groups ionize in solution, they undergo electrostatic interaction with negatively charged species. This phenomenon was utilized in this study to introduce modification in the film properties of ERL and E…
