Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


The products of chemical modification generally enhance the usefulness of cellulose because more desirable properties are incorporated. Recently, many cellulose derivatives have been developed to meet certain areas of applications Carboxymethylcellulose is one of the classical cellulose ethers; its preparation, using monochloroacetic acid and sodium hydroxide, has already been patented in 1921, but since that time only water or alkali soluble carboxymethylcellulose of high degree of substitution have found widespread application in diverse industries.
