Synthesis, characterization, and compatibility study of acetylated starch with lamivudine

In this study, highly substituted starch acetate was prepared by reaction with native moth bean starch and acetic anhydride. Physicochemical characterization of this modified starch was done using scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, and thermogravimetric analysis. Their formation was confirmed by titrimetric analysis and highest degree of substitution was observed with a value of 2.35. The synthesized modified starch was further studied for compatibility with model drug lamivudine using differential scanning calorimetry and isothermal stress testing for its controlled release tablet formulation.
