Soluble in cold water.

Applications

Methyl cellulose is used as a thickener and an emulsifier in various food and cosmetic products; as a gel in advanced cookery and as a lubricant. It is also involved in the treatment of constipation. It acts as a buffer additive in capillary electrophoresis to control electoosmotic flow for improved separations. In paper and textile industries, it is used as a sizing, thereby protecting the fibers from water or oil.

Notes

Viscosity 4000 cPs for a 2% aqueous solution at 20°C.Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents, bleach, perchloric acid, nitric acid, perchlorates, alkali nitrates, alkali nitrites and calcium oxide.
