NAME :- MICROCRYSTALLINE CELLULOSE POWDER (101-102-200)
IUPAC NAME :- 2-(hydroxymethyl)-6-[4,5,6-trihydroxy-2-(hydroxymethyl)oxan-3-yl]oxyoxane-3,4,5-triol
CAS NO. :- 9004-34-6
FORMULA :- C12H22O11
SYNONYMS :- AVICEL PH;AVICEL PH 101(R);AVICEL PH 102;AVICEL PH 105(R);AVICEL(R);''AVICEL(R)'';AVICEL SF;AVIRIN
APPLICATION :- ACCEL-101 is most widely used for direct compression tableting and wet granulation.
ACCEL-102 has similar compression properties to ACCEL-101. However, it has larger particle size and therefore, may be of value in improving the flow if fine powders.
ACCEL-200 has a large particle size which offers increased flow ability with minimum effect on compression characteristics. It can be used in direct compression and wet granulation to reduce table weight variation and to improve content uniformity.
DESCRIPTION :- Fine, white or almost white powder. It consists of free-flowing, nonfibrous particles
