Homogeneous synthesis of hydroxypropyl guar gum in an ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride.

Abstract

With potassium hydroxide (KOH) as catalyst, hydroxypropyl guar gum (HPG) was successfully prepared under homogenous conditions in an ionic liquid 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (BmimCl). The value of degree of molar substitution (MS) of HPG, which was determined by means of (1)H NMR, was easily controlled by varying the mass ratio of propylene oxide… (More)
