EipponCell® MHEC LH 6150M is derived from cotton and wood by undergoing a process involving alkalization, ethylene oxide, and methyl chloride etherification.

MHEC is a type of non-ionic cellulose mixed ether, characterized by its molecular structure [C6H7O2(OH)3-m-n(OCH3)m(OCH2CHOHCH3)n]x.   The varying proportions of methoxyl and hydroxyethyl groups in MHEC result in different viscosities and levels of product substitution uniformity.   This leads to the creation of different varieties and grades of products with distinct performance characteristics.

MHEC exhibits favorable properties such as dispersing, emulsifying, thickening, bonding, water-retention, and gel-retention.   It is soluble in water and can also be dissolved in ethanol and acetone below 70% concentration.   Additionally, the unique structure of MHEC allows for direct solubility in ethanol.

Application of MHEC LH 6150MS

EipponCell® MHEC LH 6150MS methyl hydroxyethyl cellulose demonstrates solubility in water as well as certain organic solvents.  It exhibits the ability to dissolve in cold water, and the maximum concentration achievable depends on its viscosity.  Solubility varies with viscosity, with lower viscosity corresponding to greater solubility.

MHEC products are non-ionic cellulose ethers and do not function as polyelectrolytes.  As a result, they display relative stability in aqueous solutions containing metal salts or organic electrolytes.  However, excessive addition of electrolytes can lead to gelation and precipitation.

The aqueous solutions of MHEC products possess surface-active properties, allowing them to function as colloidal protective agents, emulsifiers, and dispersants.

Upon heating the aqueous solution of MHEC products to a certain temperature, it becomes opaque, forms gels, and precipitates.  However, continuous cooling restores the solution to its original state.  The temperature at which gelation and precipitation occur primarily depends on the presence of lubricating agents, suspending agents, protective colloids, emulsifiers, and similar factors.
