Frequently Asked Questions

What is sodium carboxymethyl cellulose?

Carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) or cellulose gum is a cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl groups (-CH2-COOH) bound to some of the hydroxyl groups of the glucopyranose monomers that make up the cellulose backbone. It is often used as its sodium salt, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose.

It is one of the most important ionic cellulose gum with nickname of “industrial monosodium glutamate”. CMC has macromolecular structure and various physical and chemical properties, such as binding, emulsifying, suspending, fluid loss, etc. It doesn’t fermente and featured by salt tolerantce heat endurance. So different grades of CMC are used in different industries, such as food, oil drilling, paper-making, pharmaceutical, daily chemicals, textile & dyeing and so on.
