Based on the copper (I) catalyzed Huisgen azide-alkyne cycloaddition (click chemistry), the novel synthesis of a variety of 1,2,3-triazole-linked starch derivatives was developed, including 6-hydroxymethyltriazole-6-deoxy starch (HMTST), 6-hydroxyethyltriazole-6-deoxy starch (HETST), 6-hydroxypropyltriazole-6-deoxy starch (HPTST), and(More)
In this study, a group of novel water soluble chitosan ammonium salts with halogens were successfully synthesized, including chitosan-bromoacetate (CSB), chitosan-chloroacetate (CSC), chitosan-dichloroacetate (CSDC), chitosan-trichloroacetate (CSTC), and chitosan-trifluoroacetate (CSTF), and their antifungal activities against three kinds of phytopathogens(More)
Based on cuprous-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC), starch derivative bearing 1,2,3-triazole and pyridine (II) was prepared and subsequently followed by alkylation with iodomethane to synthesize starch derivative bearing 1,2,3-triazolium and pyridinium (III). The antifungal activities of starch derivatives against Colletotrichum lagenarium,(More)
Chemical modification of chitosan is increasingly studied for its potential of providing new application for chitosan. Here, we modify chitosan at its primary hydroxyl via 'click chemistry', and a group of novel water soluble chitosan derivatives with substituted 1,2,3-triazolyl group were designed and synthesized. Aliphatic alcohols with different lengths(More)
With the specialty of improving the water solubility of chitosan, quaternary ammonium salts have broadened the application of this polysaccharide in food, medicine and pesticides. To identify the effect of quaternary ammonium salts' quantity, single quaternized chitosan N-phenmethyl-N,N-dimethyl chitosan (PDCS), double quaternized chitosan(More)
Two novel chitosan derivatives modified with quaternary phosphonium salts were successfully synthesized, including tricyclohexylphosphonium acetyl chitosan chloride (TCPACSC) and triphenylphosphonium acetyl chitosan chloride (TPPACSC), and characterized by FTIR, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR spectra. The degree of substitution was also calculated by elemental(More)
Chemical modification of chitosan is increasingly studied for its potential of providing new applications of chitosan. Here, a group of novel chitosan quaternary ammonium derivatives containing pyridine or amino-pyridine were designed and successfully synthesized through chemical modification of chitosan. Pyridine and amino-pyridine were used as functional(More)
Chitosan is an abundant and renewable polysaccharide, which exhibits attractive bioactivities and natural properties. Improvement such as chemical modification of chitosan is often performed prior to further utilization. Three novel water soluble chitosan derivatives containing 1,2,3- triazole with or without halogen was designed and synthesized. Their(More)
Four novel starch derivatives modified with quaternary phosphonium salts were designed and successfully synthesized, including trimethylphosphonium acetyl starch chloride, tributylphosphonium acetyl starch chloride, tricyclohexylphosphonium acetyl starch chloride, triphenylphosphonium acetyl starch chloride, and characterized by FTIR, UV, 1H NMR, 13C NMR,(More)
Four novel starch-linked-1,2,3-triazole derivatives were synthesized including 6-hydroxymethyltriazole-6-deoxy starch (HMTST), 6-bromomethyltriazole-6-deoxy starch (BMTST), 6-chloromethyltriazole-6-deoxy starch (CMTST), and 6-carboxyltriazole-6-deoxy starch (CBTST). Their antibacterial properties against Escherichia coli (E. coli) and Staphylococcus aureus(More)
