Carboxymethyl cellulose, also known as CMC, is a versatile and widely used chemical thickener that has a variety of applications in different industries. It is derived from cellulose, which is a natural polymer that is found in plants and trees. CMC is a water-soluble polymer that is odorless, tasteless, and non-toxic, making it safe for use in food, pharmaceuticals, and other applications.

One of the main properties of CMC is its ability to thicken and stabilize solutions. This makes it an ideal ingredient for use in various products such as cosmetics, detergents, and paints. In the food industry, CMC is commonly used as a thickener, emulsifier, and stabilizer in products such as ice cream, salad dressings, and baked goods.

CMC is also used in the pharmaceutical industry as a binder and disintegrant in tablets and capsules. It can also be used as a suspending agent in liquid medications. In addition, CMC has been shown to have some health benefits such as reducing cholesterol levels and aiding in digestion.
