Product Profile

KLEPTOSE® HP Biopharma
Hydroxypropyl β-Cyclodextrin - Low endotoxin - High molar substitution

EP/USP compliance
Product Name

KLEPTOSE® HP Biopharma Low endotoxin Hydroxypropyl β-cyclodextrin

Generic Name
HYDROXYPROPYLBETADEX
CAS Number

128446-35-5

Chemical Structure

Molecular Weight

Nominal molecular weight: 1501 g/mol

Physical Form or Appearence

White or almost white amorphous powder.
The statistical hydroxypropylation of beta-cyclodextrin creates a multitude of molecules, differing by the position of the hydroxypropyl groups. Consequently, the product is not able to crystallize and remains in the amorphous state.

Application

KLEPTOSE® HP for biopharma uses. It is a low endotoxin pyrogen-free solution for protein stabilization. It exhibits surface activity and anti-aggregation properties for therapeutic proteins shelf life extension. KLEPTOSE® HP Biopharma also enables to reduce thermal and agitation sensitivity of formulations.

Water Content (LOD)

Nominal water content: 4%
Maximum water content: 10%

Degree of Substitution

Nominal molar substitution: 0.9
Molar substitution range: 0.81-0.99

Solubility

Highly soluble in water. At high concentration, the wetting and dissolution time of the powder is delayed due to its low density and increased viscosity.
Soluble in ethanol.
Freely soluble in propylen glycol.
