Does anybody know the functional difference between Carbonyl Methyl Cellulose and Sodium Carboxy Methyl Cellulose?
Are they essentially the same thing, with the same uses?
I did some research on the internet, but everything I found was waaaaay over my head. All I know about chemistry is that sometimes a different letter or two in a name can make a world of difference.
The easy name is Tylose. They are the same thing.
Chemist/biochemist here, chiming in a little late. All carboxyls are carbonyls, but not all carbonyls are carboxyls.
Carbonyls are compounds with a C=O group, carboxyls have a C=O and an -OH group. So in this case it doesn't really make a difference because they're both tylose .
You lost me at Carbonyl...lol
Never took Chemistry, opted for Biology, you don't need to know about cell division do you
