Methylcellulose

Methyl cellulose or methylcellulose is a chemical compound derived from cellulose. It is sold under a variety of trade names and is used as a thickener and emulsifier in various food and cosmetic products, and also as a bulk-forming laxative. Methyl cellulose is very occasionally added to hair shampoos, toothpastes, and liquid soaps, to generate their characteristic thick consistency. This is also done for foods. Methyl cellulose is also an important emulsifier, preventing the separation of two mixed liquids because it is an emulsion stabilizer. Methyl cellulose is also an important emulsifier, preventing the separation of two mixed liquids because it is an emulsion stabilizer. The E number of methyl cellulose as food additive is E461.

DESCRIPTION
Methylcellulose occurs as a white, fibrous powder or granules. It is the methyl ether of cellulose. It is soluble in water and in a limited number of organic solvent systems. Aqueous solutions of Methylcellulose are surface active, form films upon drying, and undergo a reversible transformation from sol to gel upon heating and cooling, respectively.
Function: Thickener; stabilizer; emulsifier; bodying agent; bulking agent; binder; film former.

REQUIREMENTS
Identification:
A. Add 1 g of sample to 100 mL of water. It swells and disperses to form a clear to opalescent, mucilaginous solution, depending upon the intrinsic viscosity, which is stable in the presence of most electrolytes and alcohol in concentrations up to 40%.
B. Heat a few milliliters of the solution prepared for Identification Test A. The solution becomes cloudy, and a flaky precipitate forms that re-dissolves as the solution cools.
C. Pour a few milliliters of the solution prepared for Identification Test A onto a glass plate, and allow the water to evaporate. A thin, self-sustaining film results.
Assay: Not less than 27.5% or more than 31.5% of methoxyl groups (—OCH3), calculated on the dried basis.
Lead: Not more than 3 mg/kg.
Loss on Drying: Not more than 5.0%.
Residue on Ignition: Not more than 1.5%.
Viscosity: The apparent viscosity of an aqueous solution containing 2 g of sample in each 100 mL is not less than 80% and not more than 120% of that stated on the label for viscosity types of 100 centipoises or less, and not less than 75% and not more than 140% of that stated on the label for viscosity types higher than 100 centipoises.

Inhalation: Remove to fresh air. If not breathing, give artificial respiration. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen.
Ingestion: If swallowed, induce vomiting immediately after giving two glasses of water. Never give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.

Section 5: Fire and Explosion Data

Flammability of the Product: Non-flammable.
Products of Combustion: Oxides of Carbon.
Fire Fighting Media and Instructions: Use water spray, alcohol-resistant foam, dry chemical or carbon dioxide. Wear self-contained breathing apparatus for firefighting if necessary.
Special Information: In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. At high temperatures under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes. Fire-extinguishing work is done from the windward and the suitable fire-extinguishing method according to the surrounding situation is used. Uninvolved persons should evacuate to a safe place.

Section 6: Accidental Release Measures

Personal precautions, protective equipment and emergency procedures: Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Ensure adequate ventilation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Restrict unprotected personnel from the area. Prevent any contact with hot surfaces. Do not approach facing the wind. Do not touch the spilled material.
Environmental precautions: Do not let the product enter drains, soil or water sources.
Methods and materials used for containment Cleanup procedures and Storage:
Small Spill: Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to legal requirements.
Large Spill: Contain spilled material. Cover with an inert, non-combustible absorbent material, (e.g. sand, earth, diatomaceous earth, vermiculite). Vacuum or sweep-up and remove to an approved disposal container. Do not inhale vapors, mist, or gas. Avoid dust formation. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow as per law.

Section 7: Handling and Storage

Precautions for safe handling: Apply according to good manufacturing and industrial hygiene practices. Ensure proper ventilation. Wash thoroughly after handling. Do not drink, eat or smoke while handling. Avoid contact with skin, eyes and clothing. Minimize dust generation. Avoid breathing dust/fumes/gas/mist/vapors/spray. Avoid contact with eyes, skin, and clothing. Keep container tightly closed. Avoid ingestion and inhalation. Use individual protective equipment (waterproof boots, suitable protective clothing, safety glasses, etc.). Prevent any contact with hot surfaces.
Conditions for safe storage, including any incompatibilities: Store in cool, dry and ventilated area away from heat sources and protected from sunlight in tightly closed original container. Keep air contact to a minimum. Do not leave the material container open. Store protected from heat, sparks and ignition sources and incompatible materials. Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid inhalation of dust/mist/vapor. Do not store with incompatible materials like oxidizing agents.

Section 8: Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Engineering Controls: Use process enclosures, local exhaust ventilation, or other engineering controls to keep airborne levels below recommended exposure limits. If user operations generate dust, fume or mist, use ventilation to keep exposure to airborne contaminants below the exposure limit.
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
