(C6H10O5)n
Form
Powder
Solubility
Soluble in water, dimethyl sulfoxide, ethylene glycol and glycerol.

Applications

Dextran is used in a bead form to aid in bioreactor applications, some size-exclusion chromatography matrices and in osmotic stress technique study involved in biological molecules. It can be used as a stabilizing coating to protect metal nanoparticles from oxidation. Fluorescent-labelled dextran is useful to visualize endosomes under a fluorescent microscope. It is used in the medicial field as an antithrombotic (antiplatelet) to reduce blood viscosity and as a volume expander in hypovolaemia. As a lubricant, it is used in eye drops.

Notes

Biosynthesized by Leuconostoc mesenteroides.Store in cool place. Incompatible with strong oxidizing agents.
