Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC)


Sidleycel Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) is white powder, insoluble in organic solvents or oil, can be partially soluble in alkaline solution, swell and absorbs water 2-3 times, oil 1.1-1.4 times of its own volume. As an excipient for tablet, MCC is highly porous particle, easy to transform and accommodate pharmaceutical ingredients. It has good bonding property in dry form and disintegration property, can be used in hard tablets. MCC also can be used in food additives.
