Polyelectrolyte behaviour and calcium binding properties of sugar beet pectins differing in their degrees of methylation and acetylation

Abstract

Five series of pectins with different levels and patterns of methyl esterification and/or different levels of acetyl esterification were produced by chemical or enzymatic treatment of an acid-extracted sugar beet pectin. The relationship between pKa and the degree of dissociation and the free fractions of monovalent and calcium counterions were determined… (More)
