Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose, (Synonyms: Carboxymethyl Cellulose, Carboxy Methyl Cellulose, CMC, Sodium CMC, Na-CMC) is a kind of cellulose which are most widely used food, personal care, detergent, mining flotation, paper making, oil drilling and Textile in the world.
Carboxymethyl Cellulose(CMC) was first obtained in 1918 by the German, and it granted a patent in 1921.CMC to achieve commercial production since 1921 in Europe. But CMC was only for the crude product which was used as colloid and binder. From 1936 to 1941, the industrial applied research of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is very active, people invented several enlightening patents. German use sodium carboxymethyl cellulose for synthetic detergent during World War II. In 1943, sodium carboxymethyl cellulose was first made by Hercules Company in United States, and produced the refined products sodium in 1946 which are recognized as safe food ingredients. Now, Carboxymethyl Cellulose is most widely used and the largest amount of fiber in the world's.
CMC is a kind of anionic polymers made from natural cellulose with caustic alkali and acid chloride, the molecular weight is 6400 (± 1 000). The Main by-products are sodium chloride and ethanol in this processing.
Carboxymethyl Cellulose(CMC) are widely used in many industries. And SINOCMC CO. LTD. is a professional manufacturer of CMC for 40 years. SINOCMC always contribute to improve the products quality and customer satisfaction.
