polyanionic cellulose

1. . []

A cellulose derivative similar in structure, properties and usage in drilling fluids to carboxymethylcellulose. PAC is considered to be a premium product because it typically has a higher degree of carboxymethyl substitution and contains less residual NaCl than technical grade carboxymethylcellulose, although some PACs contain considerable NaCl.
