About Carboxymethyl Cellulose. Carboxymethyl Cellulose (a.k.a. CMC, Cellulose Gum) is an organic compound, a water soluble polymer, structurally similar to cellulose, with some carboxymethyl groups bound to some hydroxyl groups. It is the most important cellulose derivative in terms of sales volume. It is usually industrially commercialized as a sodium salt.
Commercial Grades. Technical grade (ca. 75% purity); crude; semi refined; refined (min. 99.5% purity); low viscosity; high viscosity; USP; FCC
Uses. Carboxymethyl Cellulose is mainly employed in detergents; soaps; thickener; water binder for dietic foods and ice cream; pharmaceuticals; cosmetics; resin for paints; food packaging adhesives; paper coating binder;and protective colloid in paints and inks.
- Alkali cellulose + sodium chloroacetate (or chloroacetic acid) (Williamson ether formation).
