Croscarmellose sodium uses product description

Croscarmellose sodium (medicinal excipients) is a cross-linked, partially carboxymethylated sodium salt of cellulose, or a cross-linked polymer of sodium carboxymethyl cellulose. Croscarmellose sodium dissolves and forms a suspension in water and is insoluble in anhydrous ethanol, ether, acetone or toluene.

Croscarmellose sodium function and application

1. When croscarmellose sodium is in contact with water, it swells rapidly under the action of swelling force, so it has good disintegration effect, and is a cellulose-type super disintegrant, which can disintegrate and dissolve quickly.

2. Croscarmellose sodium is used as disintegrating agent for tablets, capsules and granules in oral preparations, relying on capillary and swelling effect to disintegrate, which is characterized by good compressibility and strong disintegration.

3. Croscarmellose sodium can also be used as food additives, dietary supplements.
