In the pharmaceutical industry, Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is mainly used for two aspects. One is to use the property of easily forming gels in water with vigorous stirring for preparing paste and suspension drugs. The other is to use its molding action for excipients of pharmaceutical tableting. Methyl cellulose (MC) is a methyl ether of.. read more →

Application of Microcrystalline Cellulose in Food   As a hydrolyzate of natural cellulose, microcrystalline cellulose is natural pure, non-toxic, odorless and highly safe, with a strong fluidity, and primarily as emulsifiers, foam stabilizers, heat stabilizers, thickeners, suspending agents.   In dairy products, microcrystalline cellulose can prevent sedimentation of insoluble particles and re-agglomeration of fat particles.. read more →

Uses of Microcrystalline Cellulose   English Name: Microcrystalline Cellulose Molecular Formula: C6H10O5) n, n <4000 CAS :9004-34-6   Properties Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is a free-flowing crystalline powder (a non-fibrous microparticle). It is insoluble in water, dilute acids and most organic solvents, but slightly soluble in the alkali solution of 20%. It has a wide range.. read more →

Properties of Microcrystalline Cellulose Microcrystalline cellulose is a highly porous particle or powder, in the form of white, odorless, tasteless, and easy to flow. It is insoluble in water, dilute acids, sodium hydroxide solution, and most organic solvents. It has compression molding, adhesion and disintegration effects.   Compressibility The compressibility is generally measured by the.. read more →

Prospects of Microcrystalline Cellulose   Microcrystalline Cellulose is a natural product, so its production and application have unique advantages. In rich cellulose resources, especially fiber resources from woody plants, if basic research and exploitation of Microcrystalline Cellulose aspects can be strengthened, the resource advantages will undoubtedly transformed into the commodity advantages, thus achieving economic efficiency… read more →

Physical and Chemical Properties of Microcrystalline Cellulose   1. Compressibility Compressibility refers to the possibility of powders to be molded by compression and the solid degree of compressors. Generally it is measured by the hardness of tablets. Lin Junzhu et al. studied the hardness of tablets pressed under different pressures by MCC of different samples,.. read more →

The Process of Microcrystalline Cellulose   Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is the crystalline fiber with a degree of polymerization of about 220 and a relative molecular weight of 36,000, obtained by strong acid hydrolysis of the fiber with a high degree of crystallinity to remove the amorphous part of it.   Its dispersibility in water, crystallinity.. read more →

what is microcrystalline cellulose?   MCC (microcrystalline cellulose) is a kind of purified and partially depolymerized cellulose, white, odorless, tasteless and in the shape of crystalline powder made up of porous particles. MCC is widely used in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics, food and other industries. Different particle sizes and moisture contents have different characteristics and applications… read more →

Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC)   Microcrystalline cellulose (MCC) is a very fine, white short rod or amorphous crystalline powder, made from hydrolysis of natural cellulose with dilute acid to reach the levelling off degree of polymerization, odorless and tasteless. The particle size is usually between 20 and 80 micrometers, and the levelling off degree of polymerization.. read more →

Microcrystalline Cellulose Properties It is a white fine crystalline powder, odorless and tasteless, made from free-flowing non-fibrous particles and compressed by its self-adhesion effects. It can be rapidly dispersed in water into the tablet, but insoluble in water, dilute acid or alkali solution, solution and most organic solvents, and can absorb water to swell.  .. read more →
