The physicochemical properties, cationic compositi n and rheological behaviour of exudates from Ficus glumosa were investigated. The gum was found to be mild ac i ic, ionic and soluble in water but insoluble in organic solvents. The trend for the decreasing concentration of elements determined in the gum sam ple is Mg > Ca > Mn > Zn > Fe > Ni > Cu > Cd > Pb… CONTINUE READING
