Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose

CMC is an important cellulose ether. It is obtained by chemical modification of natural fiber and is a polyanion compound with good water-solubility, easily soluble in both cold and hot water, CMC has many unusual and valuable physical and chemical characteristics such as emulsifying disparity, solid disparity, resistance to decay, being physiologically harmless etc., and is widely used as a natural macromolecular derivate.
CMC has excellent properties in terms of thickening, water retention, metabolic inertia, membrane forming and shaping ability, dispersing stability and so on, and can be used as a thickening agent, water-holding agent, adhesive, lubricating agent, emulsifier, auxiliary suspending agent, tablet base, biological base, biological carrier, etc.
