Traditionally, HPMC capsules were created using secondary gelling agents and ionic gel promoters, which have been found to interact with dissolution media and delay compound release from the capsule.
In particular, the resistance change of ionic gels is much lower than traditional electronic conductors under large strains which makes it very advantageous to be used as strain sensors [1].
