The hydrophilic-lipophilic balance number (HLB number) measures the degree of a molecule being hydrophilic or lipophilic. This number is calculated based on identifying various hydrophil and liphophil regions in the molecule. This number is a commonly used descriptor in any workflow in which lipid based delivery can be an option. (e.g. lipid-based drug delivery, cosmetics) The HLB Predictor is a general tool for predicting the HLB number. It can predict the HLB number based on the Davies or the Griffin method.


  • ChemAxon: this is a consensus method based on the other two methods with optimal weights (default).
  • Davies: this is an extended version of the Davies method.
  • Griffin: this is an extended version of the Griffin method.
