Carboxy Methyl Cellulose(CMC) is synthesized by the alkali-catalyzed reaction of cellulose with chloroacetic acid. The polar (organic acid) carboxyl groups render the cellulose soluble and chemically reactive. carboxymethyl cellulose CMC for liquid detergent.
For the food and beverage industry, high-purity grades provide multiple benefits such as improved mouthfeel and protein stabilization. Moreover, these grades can be used in various personal care and pharmaceutical applications.
CMC acts as a flow control agent, provides excellent water retention, and has a good film-forming capability. These properties provide value for multiple industrial applications such as paper surface treatment, mining, fabric care, textile, and ceramics.
