【Brief Introduction:】Name: Hydroxyethyl cellulose Abbreviation: HEC
Molecular formula: [C6H7O2(OH)3-x〖OCH(OH)CH3〗x]n
Hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC) is a non-ionic, water-soluble polymer derived from cellulose through a series of chemical and physical processes.
Hydroxyethyl cellulose is a white to light yellowish, oderless and tastless powder, readily soluble in hot or cold water to form a viscous gel solution. When pH in solution is within 2 to 12, the solution is quite stable. Since Hydroxyethyl cellulose group is nonionic one in water solution, it won't be reacted with other anions or cations and insensitive to the salts.
Hydroxyethyl cellulose also has good film-forming ability and surface activity.
