Sodium Carboxymethyl Cellulose Antimicrobial Ability

  Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose has many advantages and also has many properties. Indeed, this substance is used in many industries, which is also one of its advantages. It has anti-microbial ability, and where is it embodied?
  1. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is modified with different substituent groups such as alkyl, hydroxyalkyl, and the antimicrobial ability is increased. After research, it was found that the degree of substitution of the derivatives of water-soluble sodium carboxymethyl cellulose is an important reason for affecting the enzyme resistance. When the degree of substitution is higher than 1, the product has the ability to resist microbial erosion, and the higher the degree of substitution and the better the uniformity. The stronger the anti-microbial ability.
  2. Sodium carboxymethyl cellulose has relatively strong anti-microbial ability. The higher the degree of substitution of the product, the stronger the anti-enzyme ability. Considering the direction of food application, they hardly change after passing through the intestinal tract, which shows that they are stable for a wide range of biochemical and enzymatic systems.
