What is Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC)? Microcrystalline cellulose is widely used in pharmaceuticals, primarily as a binder/diluent in oral tablet and capsule formulations where it is used in both wet-granulation and direct-compression processes. In addition to its use as a binder/diluent, Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) also has some lubricant and disintegrant properties that make it useful in tablet manufacturing. MCC is purified, partially depolymerized cellulose synthesized by acid-hydrolysis of alpha cellulose (I?-allomorph). It was discovered in 1955 by O. A. Battista and P. A. Smith and was first commercialized under the brand name Avicel®. In 1962, they reported its preparation scheme by the American Viscose Company of microcrystalline cellulose (MCC), hence the origin of the product name “Avicel”. In 1964 FMC, Corporation introduced Avicel® PH to the pharmaceutical industry as an ingredient for direct compression tableting where the “PH” designation indicates that the product is suitable for pharmaceutical use . The MCC was first registered in the supplement to the National Formulary, twelfth edition, in 1966. Manufacturing & Synthesis of Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Microcrystalline cellulose manufacturers and suppliers use controlled hydrolysis with dilute mineral acid solutions of a-cellulose, obtained as a pulp from fibrous plant materials. Following hydrolysis, the hydrocellulose is purified by filtration and the aqueous slurry is spraydried to form dry, porous particles of a broad size distribution. Manufacturing of MCC can be done by different processes such as reactive extrusion process, enzyme mediated process, the steam explosion process and acid hydrolysis process. The acid hydrolysis process is preferred due to its shorter reaction duration comparing to the other processes. Furthermore, it can be applied by a continuous process rather than a batch-type process and it consumes limited quantity of acid and can produce fine particles of the MCC. Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) manufacturing synthesis procedure of reported by Ohwoavworhua et al. and applied with slight modification by Ohwoavworhua et al. can be concluded as follow: A 50 g quantity of the ?-cellulose was hydrolyzed with 0.8 l of 2.5 N hydrochloric acid at a boiling temperature of 105° for 15 min. The fraction passing through 710 µm sieve was obtained and stored at room temperature in a desiccator. Some of the key Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Manufacturers & Suppliers in the global market are Asahi Kasei Corporation, MINGTAI CHEMICAL CO., LTD., J. RETTENMAIER & SÖHNE GmbH + Co KG, BLANVER FARMOQUÍMICA LTDA, Accent Microcell Pvt. Ltd., FMC Corporation, JUKU ORCHEM PRIVATE LIMITED, DFE Pharma GmbH & Co. KG, Libraw Pharma, Sigachi Industrial Pvt. Ltd., and Avantor Performance Materials, Inc these all are registered suppliers of Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) in US, EU & ASIA. Specifications of Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) For Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) manufacturing, cellulose, collected from fibrous material, undergoes controlled hydrolysis with dilute mineral acid. It has high absorbent powers, and can be used as a suspending agent, tablet disintegrant and tablet & capsule diluent According to I.P./USP/BP specifications. Various grades of Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) are available and are manufactured according to the specifications mentioned in USP, EU and other monographs. Drying of the Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) There are different techniques can be used by Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) manufacturers & Suppliers for drying, namely freeze-drying (lyophilization) using liquid nitrogen, fluid-bed drying, hot air oven drying and desiccation with silica-gel to less than 5% (w/w) water content. MCC is commonly dried by spray-drying the neutralized slurry obtained from the hydrolysis process. By varying spray drying conditions, it can be manipulating the degree of agglomeration and moisture content. Smaller particle sizes below 50 ?m can be obtained by further milling MCC. Characterization of the Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) excipient manufacturers and suppliers use different techniques to characterize the Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) such as infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), X-ray diffraction (XRD), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), differential thermal analysis (DTA) or differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), atomic force spectroscopy (AFM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), hi-resolution transmission electron microscopy (Hi-TEM). Physicochemical Properties of Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) The organoleptic characteristic, identification tests, solubility and presence of organic impurities such as starch, dextrin and water-soluble substances can be done according to credit procedures such as the British Pharmacopoeia (BP) specifications. Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) manufacturers and suppliers perform pH determination of the supernant obtained by shaking 2 g of the MCC powder with 100 ml of deionized water for 5 minutes. Total ash content in the MCC can be determined by weighing the residue remained after combustion at 550° until all the carbon is eliminated. For particle size analysis by microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) suppliers , it can be determined using a sieve shaker, containing standard sieves arranged in a descending order according to their opening size. About 20 grams of the MCC powder is placed on the top sieve and shaking for 5 min. The weight of MCC retained on each sieve is determined. The average diameter can be calculated as reported by Ansel et al. The real density (Dr) of cellulose powders can be determined by the xylene displacement method and computed according to the following Equation: Dr = [w/{(a+w)- b}×SG], where w represents weight of powder, SG represents specific gravity of xylene, a represents sum weights of bottle and solvent and b represents the sum weights of bottle, solvent and the Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) powder. For the moisture content (MC) determination, about 2 g of the MCC sample was weighed (A) and oven-dried at 105-C for 8 hours, and then weighed again (B). The MC was calculated using the following formula: [(A-B)/A] ×100. Spectroscopic Studies of the Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) excipient manufacturers use optical microscope (10X, 40X or 100 X magnifications) for speculating hydrolysis progress as well as preliminary assessment of the MCC particles. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and/or transmission electron microscopy (TEM) study is widely used by Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) manufacturers to characterize the MCC particles. For X-ray differaction (XRD), the wide angle X-ray diffraction spectra of the MCC can be recorded on a proper X-ray differactometer such as a XRD 7000 Shimadzu diffractometer (Japan). The crystallinity index of the Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) can be determined by using the following equation: Ic=[(I002-Iam)/( I002)]x100 [20], where I002 represents the intensity of crystalline peak arising from and alphacellulose while Iam is the crystallographic plane arising from remained amorphous cellulose plus amorphous impurities (lignin and pectin). Assay of Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) Microcrystalline Cellulose (MCC) excipient manufacturers use monographs to test the formulation used with it which is transfer about 125 mg of the sample, accurately weighed, to a 300 ml Erlenmeyer flask, using about 25 ml of water. Add 50.0 ml of 0.5N potassium dichromate and mix. Carefully add 100 ml of sulfuric acid and heat to boiling. Remove from heat, allow to stand at room temperature for 15 min and cool in a water bath. Transfer the contents into a 250 ml volumetric flask, rinse flask with distilled water, add rinsings to the volumetric flask and dilute with water almost to volume. Allow the volumetric flask to reach room temperature (250 ), then make up to volume with water and mix. Titrate a 50.0 ml aliquot with 0.1N ferrous ammonium sulfate using 2 or 3 drops of ortho-phenanthroline TS as the indicator and record the volume required as S in ml.
