1 In April, 2002 the Carbomer Copolymer and Interpolymer monographs became effective in USP 25-NF 20. Subsequently, on January 1, 2006 the Carbomer Homopolymer monograph became effective in USP 29-NF 24 with a delayed implementation date of January 1, 2011. Prior to January 1, 2011 the practice of labeling products as Carbomer 941, Carbomer 934P, Carbomer 934 or Carbomer 940 was allowed. The added monographs each include three categories of carbomers (Type A, Type B, and Type C) that differ by viscosity range.
