Microcrystalline cellulose (Microcrystallinecellulose, MCC) is a natural cellulose by acid hydrolysis to limit the product of the degree of polymerization, its color is white or almost white Chemicalbook, odourless, tasteless, particle size is generally about 2 ~ 80 microns, It has the advantages of low density, high modulus, renewable, degradable, wide source and so on. It can be used as reinforcing agent to improve the properties of composite materials.
Generally, the density of microcrystalline cellulose is lower for lyophilized cellulose and higher for spray dried cellulose. The moisture content is about 5%. Microcrystalline cellulose is dispersible but insoluble in water, insoluble in dilute acids, organic solvents Chemicalbook, and oils, swells and partially dissolves in dilute alkaline solutions. By dispersing microcrystalline cellulose powder in water, a white transparent gel or paste can be obtained, which remains stable for many years except for very rare ones.
chemical property:L, 4-bonded glucose baseline polymer. White odorless tasteless substance, containing cellulose particles, can be compressed into a rapidly dispersed tablet in water by its own adhesion. There are various levels, ranging from dense, free-flowing powders to coarse, fluff Chemicalbook, non-flowing substances. Insoluble in water, dilute acids, and almost all organic solvents. Slightly soluble in sodium hydroxide solution and hot casein sodium solution. It has hydrophilic and lipophilic properties, which can swell and run in water and have negative charge, so it can adsorb metal ions and cationic substances in the solution.
