Superfine Edible Cellulose – Microcrystalline Cellulose   The superfine edible cellulose, i.e., Microcrystalline Cellulose, MCC for short, is a granular powder product with a size of about 10μm, obtained from the hydrolysis of the natural cellulose in an acidic medium, making the molecular weight reduced to a certain range. It is mainly used in the.. read more →

Application of Microcrystalline Cellulose—Avicel in Medicine   Avicel is the foreign trade name, composed by mixing the product with sodium carboxymethyl cellulose in different proportions. For example, Avicel -RC-591 contains 11%(±1)CMC; while Avicel -RC-581 contains 8.5%(±1)CMC. These models are used in the food industry.   Products of Avicel PH models are used for the pharmaceutical.. read more →

Difference between Methyl Cellulose (MC) and Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose (HPMC) 1. Hydroxypropyl Methyl Cellulose is easily soluble in cold water but difficult to be soluble in hot water. However, its gelling temperature in hot water is significantly higher than that of methyl cellulose (MC). And compared with Methyl Cellulose, the dissolution in cold water has.. read more →

Rheological Property of Methyl cellulose Solution   The rheological property of Methyl cellulose plays a very important role in many practical applications.  In coatings, cosmetics, food industry and building material products, it is bound to affect their flow behavior.   The viscosity of Newtonian fluid is not dependent on the shear rate (or the gradient.. read more →

Properties of Methyl Cellulose   Methyl cellulose have excellent water retention properties, and are widely used in the curing of cement and plaster, and some water-based paints and wallpaper adhesives with certain requirements for adhesion. The water retention capacity of methyl cellulose will increase with the increase of the hydrophilic group content and viscosity.  .. read more →

Solubility of Methyl Cellulose Products Methyl cellulose (MC) has excellent solubility in water, and can be dissolved in water in any proportion. When the DS (degree of substitution) of methyl cellulose is greater than 2.1, it is soluble in ethanol; If the DS is more than 2.4, it is soluble in acetone, ethyl acetate and.. read more →

 Classification of Methyl Cellulose Products    Methyl cellulose products of the U.S. Dow Chemical Company have been classified into two kinds: high grade and standard grade. All the high-grade methyl cellulose products can be used as additives in food and medicine, and meet the requirements of Food Chemicals Codex and International Nutrition Pharmacopoeia. 1. The.. read more →

Application of MC (Methyl Cellulose) in Food Earlier MC can be used for the stability of beverages, preventing dehydration of frozen food, and for bonding meat and bread to retain water and prevent scorching. MC and low methoxy pectin ester solution coated on a lot of nutritious foods can improve the strength and oil resistance.. read more →

Application of HPMC in the Pharmaceutical Industry   HPMC (HydroxyPropyl Methyl Cellulose) not only has the properties of other cellulose ethers such as thickening, dispersion, emulsification, adhesion, film-forming, moisture retention and providing protective colloids effects, but also has better solubility in organic solvents than methyl cellulose and hydroxy ethyl cellulose. In the pharmaceutical industry, HydroxyPropyl.. read more →
