- Acetate of potato starch can be produced by reaction between the starch and acetic anhydride in alkaline solution, then crosslinking acetated starch can be obtained by crosslinking reaction between acetated starch and crosslinking agent.
- The chemical structure of the acetate starch was characterized by using IR spectrum.The degree of substitution (DS) and the content of acetyl of the products were determined.
- Keywords cassava starch;acetated starch;esterification;catalysts;substitution degree;
- Sugar and starch are broken down in the stomach.
