Abstract: In this research, the aim was to extract starch from some new varieties of taro and study the physiochemical properties. Furthermore, starches with varying degrees of amylose and amylopectin were blended with Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) to develop hydrogels and study the in vitro drug release using quetiapine fumarate as the model drug in different artificial gastrointestinal fluids.
