Cellouronic acid sodium salt

Cellouronic acid is formed by oxidising the primary hydroxyl groups of cellulose to yield the 6-carboxycellulose (β-1,4 glucuronide).  As the sodium salt, this water-soluble derivative presents excellent rheological and gel-forming properties and when cast as films, exhibit superior gas barrier properties. In addition to these physical characteristics, cellouronic acid is biodegradable and has shown promise in a number of biological and medical applications ranging from wound healing, to bioabsorbable hemostatic properties. Cellouronic acid has also demonstrated activity as a bioactive elicitor for defense response in plants.
