Microcrystalline Cellulose PH101,102,mcc

- Jun 19, 2020-

Microcrystalline Cellulose, white powder, revolutionized tableting because of its unique compressibility and carrying

capacity.It exhibits excellent properties as an excipient for solid dosage forms. It compacts well under minimum

compression pressures,has high binding capability and creates tablets that are extremely hard, stable, yet disintegrate

rapidly. Other advantages include low friability, inherent lubricity, and the highest dilution potential of all binders. These

properties make Microcrystalline Cellulose particularly valuable as a filler and binder for formulations prepared by direct

compression, although it is also used in wet or dry granulation.


1.suitable for textile, clothing, brewing, food, paper and other industries.

2. the binder and disintegrating agent used for direct compression are also food additives.

Used as anti knot agent, our country stipulates that it can be used for powder flavor, the maximum use amount is 50g/kg, it can also be used for ice cream, the maximum use amount is 40g.kg; it can also be used for thin cream and plant fat powder, the maximum use amount 20.0g/kg.

3. anticoagulant; emulsifier; binder; cataclastic; dispersant; tissue modifier; non nutritive swelling agent; dietary fiber; turbid stabilizer; heat stabilizer; fast drying carrier; differential dispersant and tablet.

According to EEC, it can be used for high fiber bread; low calorie candy, biscuits, cake and bread; pigments, spices and edible acid filling agents; dehydrated food, snack food and bionic fruit slices.

4. the hydroxyl group of cellulose polymer can be esterified or etherified, and many useful products can be derived. Cellulose esters used in practice include cellulose nitrate, cellulose acetate, cellulose acetate butyrate and cellulose xanthate. Cellulosic ethers are: methyl cellulose, carboxymethyl cellulose, ethyl cellulose, hydroxyethyl cellulose, cyanoethyl cellulose, hydroxypropyl cellulose and hydroxypropyl methyl cellulose. In addition, there are also esters and ether mixed derivatives.
