Preparation and study of carboxymethylstarch

  • G. A. Fedorova

It has been shown that when a mixture of starch with sodium hydroxide and monochloroacetic acid is irradiated, the carboxymethylstarch (CMS) obtained consists of fractions with high levels of carboxymethyl groups and fractions with a predominant content of carbonyl groups, and when this mixture is subjected to mechanical treatment a far-reaching rearrangement of the structure of the starch takes place with its homogeneous interaction with the reagents to form CMS.
