Starch Derivatization
Fascinating and Unique Industrial Opportunities
by K. F. Gotlieb
and A. Capelle

Starch Derivatization addresses the large possibilities of starch as an industrial raw material.

Starch Derivatization describes a number of new developments and addresses topics such as:

  • Relation between granular structure and derivatization
  • Derivatization in aqueous alcohol
  • New starch esters
  • Use of spacers in derivatization
  • Enzymatic derivatization

Starch Derivatization is intended for the (industrial) starch researcher as well as for those professionals interested in the derivatization and application of polysaccharides and natural polymers.


The starch granule, effects of crystallinity and surface on derivatization

  • Structural elements, surface layers
  • Channels, pores and voids
  • Changing the surface, active surface spots
