Buy 4-CMC Crystals Powder Online
Buy 4-CMC Crystals Powder Online , 4-CMC Crystals Powde (CMC) is an anionic, water-soluble cellulose derivative. Solubility of CMC depends on the DP as well as the degree of substitution.
Also and the uniformity of the substitution distribution. Water solubility of CMC would increase with decreased DP and increased carboxymethyl substitution and substitution uniformity. The viscosity of the solution increases with increasing DP and increasing concentration.
CMC is soluble in water at any temperature. Because of its highly hygroscopic nature, CMC hydrates rapidly. Rapid hydration may cause agglomeration and lump formation when the CMC powder is introduce into water.
Lump creation can be eliminate by applying high agitation. While the powder is add into the water or blending The CMC powder with other dry ingredients such as sugar before adding into water.
Due to its high solubility and clarity of its solutions, CMC is commonly use in beverages and beverage dry mixes to provide rich mouthfeel. It is also use in acidify protein drinks to stabilize protein and prevent it from precipitating.
CMC is also add to syrup and sauce formulations to increase viscosity. Bakery is another application where CMC is commonly use to improve the quality and the consistency of the end product. In tortilla breads, for example, it is use to improve the process ability of the dough and the textural properties of the end product, including foldability and rollability.
CMC is a derivative of cellulose, containing carboxymethyl groups that are generated via the reaction of cellulose with chloroacetate in alkali to produce substitutions in the C2, C3, or C6 positions of glucose units (Gelman, 1982).
As a result, CMC is water soluble and more amenable to the hydrolytic activity of cellulases. CMC is therefore a useful additive to both liquid and solid medium for the detection of cellulase activity.
