Dextran is a polymer compound mainly used in the fields of biomedicine and cosmetics. It is mainly composed of glucose units and can be prepared through microbial fermentation, acid plants, or rice bran, and is widely used in industries such as medicine, food, environmental protection, and chemical engineering.
In the field of medicine, Dextran can be used to prepare blood substitutes, such as plasma substitutes for blood transfusion and kidney protectors for protecting the kidneys. At the same time, it can also serve as a drug carrier to promote drug delivery to target cells such as tumor cells, improve drug efficacy, and reduce side effects.
In the food industry, Dextran can be used to prepare preservatives, stabilizers, and thickeners, and is widely used in desserts, canned goods, beverages, and other foods. At the same time, it can also be used to manufacture healthy foods such as dietary fiber and prebiotics, promoting intestinal health.
In the fields of environmental protection and chemical engineering, Dextran can be used to prepare oil solvents, adsorbents, slow-release agents, etc. It is widely used in environmental pollution control, chemical production, and other fields. At the same time, it can also be used to manufacture biodegradable materials, achieving sustainable development goals.
Overall, Dextran, as a multifunctional polymer material, has broad application prospects in various fields. With the continuous progress of technology in the future, Dextran’s application scope will become increasingly broad, bringing more convenience and benefits to human production and life.
