IUPAC NAME :- sodium (E)-4-octadecoxy-4-oxobut-2-enoate
CAS NO. :- 4070-80-8
FORMULA :- C22H39NAO4
SYNONYMS :- Monosodium salt of fumeric acid stearyl ester.
APPLICATION :- Binder
DESCRIPTION :- Sodium Stearyl Fumarate is an inert, hydrophilic, tablet lubricant. Sodium Stearyl Fumarate exhibit less sensitivity to variations in blending time & lubricant levels and have superior hardness characteristics. It avoids incompabilities, with active ingredients result in excellent API stability. Sodium Stearyl Fumarate is more hydrophilic which accelerates disintegration. Sodium Stearyl Fumarate is relatively inert & due to its high melting point is the preferred lubricant for high speed direct lubrication which enhances production yield & better dissolution rate. Sodium Stearyl Fumarate is effective at use levels of 1-3%.
