A cellulose derivative with carboxymethyl groups attached to some hydroxyl groups of glucopyranose monomers is carboxymethyl cellulose under the trade name Tylose.
It is synthesized by alkaline catalyzed reaction of cellulose with chloroacetic acid. After the initial reaction, the resulting mixture also produces 60% and 40% salt.
Applications of Tylose:
This compound is non-toxic and has a high viscosity, which is why it use in a wide range of industries, which we will examine further.
Tylose in Food industry:
It a viscosity modifier or thickener use to stabilize emulsions in products such as ice cream, bread, and cakes. They use it in gluten-free food products to reduce fat. It also use as an emulsifier in biscuits, candy, chewing gum, margarine and peanut butter.
This substance use in ophthalmology as a lubricant in artificial tears to treat dry eyes. Also, in veterinary medicine, it use in abdominal surgeries of large animals in order to prevent intestinal adhesions.
It use in detergents such as laundry detergents, compounds such as toothpaste, diet pills, water-based paints, detergents, and crafts. It also use as a thickening agent in the oil drilling industry and as a component of drilling mud.
Carboxymethylcellulose is the same as Tylose, which use in a wide range of industries as a stabilizer and emulsifier. This material is widely use in the food industry, especially in the preparation of ice cream.
