Green preparation and characterisation of waxy maize starch nanoparticles through enzymolysis and recrystallisation.

Waxy maize starch was treated by a facile and green enzymolysis procedure to fabricate starch nanoparticles (StNPs). The yield of StNPs was raised to 85% by pullulanase treatment, and the preparation duration was two days. Morphology (SEM, TEM), crystalline structure (XRD), thermal gravimetry analysis (TGA), and the group changing (FTIR) of StNPs prepared… CONTINUE READING
