The literature of starch has proliferated in the last ten years at an almost geometric rate and a number of important changes and developments in the technology of starch and its derivatives have taken place which makes it highly desirable to review these in some depth. The immensity ofthe subject determined the writer to seek the assistance of a number of prominent workers throughout the world. Where older work contains factual information of present value it has been retained, generally in the form of Additional References. These are brief abstracts which will help specialised searchers in a branch of the subject to complete the information given in the text. Inclusion of dis jointed information can often lead to the loss of coherence and clarity, and the device of the Additional References, whilst allowing smooth presentation, also allows the inclusion of up-to-the-minute material appearing after the main text has been written. Apart from the immense amount of important practical and theoretical detail required to produce and use starch for many applications in a number of important industries, a thorough knowledge is also required of a number of aspects for the successful buying and selling of starch. This book was written and published contemporaneously with two others entitled Starch Production Technology and Examination and Analysis of Starch and Starch Products. The three books together provide a wide coverage of starch technology and chemistry with the self-contained individual volumes providing precise information for specialist readers.

Starch is a group of poly saccharides, composed of glucopyranose units joined together by glucosidric linkages. Starch is also metabolized for energy in plants and animals, and is used to produce a large number of industrial products. Starch is processed to produce many of the sugars in processed foods. The biggest industrial non food use of starch is as adhesive in the paper making process. Other important fields of starch application are textiles, cosmetic and pharmaceutical uses. Starch can be obtained from maize, sorghum, roots and tubers such as tapioca, arrow root, potatoes etc. Starch truly serves as a multifunctional ingredient in the food industry. Starch is one of the most present biomaterials has witnessed significant developments over the years. By products are obtained in the manufacture of different types of starch such as maize gluten has a number of interesting possible uses in industry, zein (by product of corn processing) is used in the preparation of stable glass like plastics, modification of zien is used as adhesives and in the preparation of coating compositions for paper, the most important by product from wheat starch manufacture is gluten which is used in preparing diabetic foods, for feeding cattle, thickening agent in textile printing and so on. The Global starch market is likely to get respite from deceleration in its market growth, with growth poised to receive a new lease of life in the next few years. This book basically illustrates about the properties, structures, manufacturing process explained with flowcharts and diagrams, applications of starch and its derivatives etc. The major contents of the book are structure and chemical properties of starch, chemical composition, molecular structure, starch granule properties, water sorption and granule swelling as a function of relative humidity, factors affecting starch paste properties, the oxidation of starch etc. This is a unique book, concise, up to date resource offering a valuable presentation of the subject. This book contains processes of starch and its derivatives. This book is an invaluable resource for new entrepreneurs, industrialists, consultants, libraries.

The International Symposium on Plant Polymeric Carbohydrates, which was held as a satellite symposium of the International Carbohydrate Meeting, has become a symposium in its own right, bringing together an number of experts to exchange knowledge. This has been achieved by placing the emphasis on specific aspects of carbohydrate research in the selection and organization of the items on the programme. The aim of the symposium was to present the latest research in sub-branches of the biosynthesis and structure of polymeric carbohydrates, their rheological properties, both as pure substances and in complex bonds with other natural materials, their nutritional importance with respect to their physicochemical and nutritive properties, and their industrial applications in food and non-food.

"Starch derivatization: fascinating and unique industrial opportunities" addresses the large possibilities of starch as an industrial raw material. Starch is industrially produced on a large scale, from various plants such as corn, tapioca and potato. It is renewable, "green" and cheap. Although the starches from these plants differ, the current application areas are the same. Besides the classical applications of starch in food products, their use as adhesives and in the paper and textile industry, new applications such as bioplastics are being developed.Currently a relatively small number of chemicals are used industrially for modification. By varying the degree of modification and the combination of different modifications a large number of products can be prepared. New possibilities are created by the use of new chemicals and the preparation of highly substituted products in non conventional solvents, such as aqueous alcohols. Using newly developed enzymes also increases the scope of applications.This book 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 The book is meant for the (industrial) starch researcher as well as for everyone else interested in the derivatization and application of polysaccharides and natural polymers.

The progressive dwindling of fossil resources, coupled with the drastic increase in oil prices, have sparked a feverish activity in search of alternatives based on renewable resources for the production of energy. Given the predominance of petroleum- and carbon-based chemistry for the manufacture of organic chemical commodities, a similar preoccupation has recently generated numerous initiatives aimed at replacing these fossil sources with renewable counterparts. In particular, major efforts are being conducted in the field of polymer science and technology to prepare macromolecular materials based on renewable resources. The concept of the bio-refinery, viz. the rational exploitation of the vegetable biomass in terms of the separation of its components and their utilisation as such, or after suitable chemical modifications, is thus gaining momentum and considerable financial backing from both the public and private sectors. This collection of chapters, each one written by internationally recognised experts in the corresponding field, covers in a comprehensive fashion all the major aspects related to the synthesis, characterization and properties of macromolecular materials prepared using renewable resources as such, or after appropriate modifications. Thus, monomers such as terpenes and furans, oligomers like rosin and tannins, and polymers ranging from cellulose to proteins and including macromolecules synthesized by microbes, are discussed with the purpose of showing the extraordinary variety of materials that can be prepared from their intelligent exploitation. Particular emphasis has been placed on recent advances and imminent perspectives, given the incessantly growing interest that this area is experiencing in both the scientific and technological realms. Discusses bio-refining with explicit application to materials Replete with examples of applications of the concept of sustainable development Presents an impressive variety of novel macromolecular materials
