9010-66-6 Usage

Chemical Properties

Different sources of media describe the Chemical Properties of 9010-66-6 differently. You can refer to the following data:
1. White to slightly yellow powder; odorless; tasteless. Free of cystine, lysine, and tryptophan. A resinous material dispersible in water with neutral sulfonated castor oil; soluble in dilute alcohol; insoluble in water, dilute acids, anhydrous alcohols, turpentine, esters, oils, fats. Nontoxic protein of the prolamine class, derived from corn; contains 17 amino acids. Combustible.
2. Zein is a prolamin obtained from corn (Zea mays Linne' (Fam. Gramineae)). It occurs as a granular, straw- to pale yellow-colored amorphous powder or fine flakes and has a characteristic odor and bland taste.


Different sources of media describe the Uses of 9010-66-6 differently. You can refer to the following data:
1. Paper coating, grease-resistant coating, label varnishes, laminated board, solid-color prints, printing inks, food coatings, microencapsulation, fibers.
2. Zein is a corn protein produced from corn gluten meal. it lacks the amino acids, lysine and tryptophan, so it is not suitable as a sole source of dietary protein. it is insoluble in water and alcohols but is soluble in aqueous alcohols, glycols, and glycol ethers. it functions as a film and coating to provide a moisture barrier for nuts and grain products. it also functions as a coating for confections and a glaze for panned goods.
3. Zein has been used as a biopolymer in electrospinning technique. It has also been used to blend starch involved in the manufacture of thermoplastic material.

Production Methods

Zein is extracted from corn gluten meal with dilute propan-2-ol.

General Description

Zein is a prolamine and an alcohol soluble protein present in maize endosperm cells. Zein is a 20kDa structural protein and is encoded by the gene mapped on the short arm of maize chromosome 7. This protein lacks essential amino acids, such as lysine and tryptophan. Therefore, it has a poor nutritional value.

Pharmaceutical Applications

Zein is used as a tablet binder in wet-granulation processes or as a tablet-coating agent mainly as a replacement for shellac. It is used primarily as an enteric-coating agent or in extended-release oral tablet formulations and other delivery systems. Zein is also used in food applications as a coating agent.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Zein is used in the manufacture of fiber, adhesive, coating, ceramic, ink, cosmetic, textile, chewing gum and biodegradable plastics. This protein is a biodegradable and sustainable agropolymer. Thus, it is a great potential replacement for traditional oil-based plastics.

Safety Profile

When heated to decomposition it emits acrid smoke and irritating fumes.


Zein is used in oral pharmaceutical formulations and food products, and is generally regarded as an essentially nontoxic and nonirritant material at the levels employed as an excipient. However, it may be harmful if ingested in large quantities.


Zein should be stored in an airtight container, in a cool, dry place. It has not been reported to polymerize.


Incompatible with oxidizing agents.

Regulatory Status

GRAS listed. Included in the FDA Inactive Ingredients Database (oral tablets). Included in nonparenteral medicines licensed in the UK. Included in the Canadian List of Acceptable Non-medicinal Ingredients.

Check Digit Verification of cas no

The CAS Registry Mumber 9010-66-6 includes 7 digits separated into 3 groups by hyphens. The first part of the number,starting from the left, has 4 digits, 9,0,1 and 0 respectively; the second part has 2 digits, 6 and 6 respectively.
Calculate Digit Verification of CAS Registry Number 9010-66:
76 % 10 = 6
So 9010-66-6 is a valid CAS Registry Number.
