xanthan gum CAS 11138-66-2

1. Xanthan gum

Xanthan gum, CAS 11138-66-2, E 415, molecular formula C35H49O29, molecular weight 933.748 g/mol.

Xanthan gum is a microbial extracellular polysaccharide with a wide range of effects produced by Xanthomonas campestris with carbohydrates as the main raw material (such as corn starch) through fermentation engineering.

2. Characteristics of xanthan gum

Xanthan gum is currently the most superior biological gum in the world, which integrates thickening, suspension, emulsification, and stabilization in one. Xanthan gum molecular side chain end contains a number of pyruvate groups, which has a great impact on its performance. Xanthan gum has the general properties of long-chain polymers, but it contains more functional groups than normal polymers, which will show unique properties under specific conditions. Its conformation in an aqueous solution is diverse and shows different properties under different conditions.

3. Applications of xanthan gum

Xanthan gum due to its unique properties, so in the food, petroleum, pharmaceutical, daily chemical, and other dozen fields has a very wide range of applications, its high degree of commercialization, the application of a wide range, so that any other microbial polysaccharides are unparalleled.

3.1 Food: many foods are added to xanthan gum as a stabilizer, emulsifier, suspending agent, thickening agent, and processing aids.

3.2 Daily chemical: xanthan gum molecule contains a large number of hydrophilic groups, is a good surface-active substance, and has antioxidants, prevents skin aging and other effects, so almost most high-end cosmetics have xanthan gum as its main functional ingredients.

3.3 Medical: Xanthan gum is a functional component of the internationally popular microencapsulated drug capsule material, which plays an important role in controlling the slow release of drugs; due to its strong hydrophilic and water retention, there are many specific medical applications, such as the formation of a dense water film to avoid skin infections; to reduce the patient’s thirst after radiation therapy.

3.4 Industrial and agricultural applications: in the petroleum industry, due to its strong pseudo-plasticity, a low concentration of xanthan gum (0.5%) aqueous solution can maintain the viscosity of the drilling fluid and control its rheological properties, and thus in the high-speed rotation of the bit part of the viscosity is very small, saving power; while in the relatively stationary drilling part of the high viscosity, thereby preventing the collapse of the good wall.
