Hydroxypropylemethylecellulose (HPMC) and Polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) polymer virgin and blend films were prepared and investigated using wide angle X-ray scattering method. Microstructural parameters like lattice strain (g %), the crystallite size for individual the Bragg’s reflection (hkl) have been computed using line profile analysis and hence by whole pattern fitting method. The X-ray diffraction study reveals that the blending of PVP decreases the crystallanity of HPMC up to 5:4 concentration and then increases. Measured tensile strength decreases, Young’s Modulus decreases, and % elongation increases as the concentration of PVP increases. The surface morphology investigated using scanning electron microscope, shows that the two polymers were miscible in all concentration range.
