Maximum yield of dextran was obtained when using ground date seeds. Different concentrations of date seeds were applied and the highest dextran production was achieved at 6 g/flask. Extraction of dextran was carried out using ethanol. The molecular weight of the purified dextran was 67 kDa by GPC. Spectral analysis showed that dextran contains D-glucose units in a linear chain with consecutive α-(1,6) linkages. The melting temperature (Tm) was 70.56C, and the value of ΔH was -290.57 mJ, as… Expand
