CAS No. 39422-83-8
Carboxymethyl dextrans (CM-dextran) are white, odourless and tasteless powders which are freely soluble in water or electrolyte solutions.
CM-dextran consists of a dextran backbone substituted with carboxymethyl substituents imparting a polyanionic character to the product. The carboxymethyl content corresponds to about 1 CM group for every 5 glucose units.
We now offer a range of molecular sizes for research and development of new applications.
Potential area of interest.
- as reagents for binding cations(inorganic and organic)via carboxyl reactions.
- as cosmetics
- as non-toxic ingredients in formulations
- as stabilisers for sensitive biopolymers
