Comparison of the structure and properties of hydroxypropylated acid-hydrolysed maize starches with different amylose/amylopectin contents
Dually modified regular maize starch (RMS) and high-amylose maize starch (HAMS) were successfully prepared by first acid hydrolysis and subsequently hydroxypropylation. The effects of hydrolysis timeExpand


Current Understanding on Starch Granule Structures
Starch is synthesized in semi-crystalline granular structures. Starches of different botanical origins possess different granular sizes, morphology, polymorphism and enzyme digestibility. TheseExpand
Effect of acid hydrolysis on the multi-scale structure change of starch with different amylose content
This work demonstrates how the multi-scale structure of starch granules changes during acid hydrolysis. The degradation mechanism has also been discussed. Both the whole native Gelose 80 (G80) starchExpand

Synthesis of cationic starch with a high degree of substitution in an ionic liquid
Abstract Cationic corn starch derivatives containing quaternary ammonium groups with a high degree of substitution were synthesized by reacting corn starch with glycidyltrimethylammonium chlorideExpand
High-Amylose Starches to Bridge the "Fiber Gap": Development, Structure, and Nutritional Functionality.
This review identifies the molecular and microstructural features contributing to digestive enzyme resistance not only in native HAS but also in forms of relevance to food processing and identifies opportunities for food manufacturers and consumers to incorporate HAS in food products and diets for better nutritional outcomes.

Effect of annealing and pressure on microstructure of cornstarches with different amylose/amylopectin ratios.
The effect of annealing and pressure on starch gelatinization temperature and enthalpy are used to explore the mechanisms and indicated that some of the fixed region in crystallinity was susceptible to outside forces. Expand
Extrusion processing and characterization of edible starch films with different amylose contents
Various edible starch films were prepared via extrusion, with a particular focus on the effects of the amylose content of starches from the same resource (corn) on film processibility andExpand
Two-dimensional macromolecular distributions reveal detailed architectural features in high-amylose starches.
The 2D distributions reveal novel features in the branching structure of high-amylose maize starches that may prevent these molecules from maturing into full-size amylopectin, which may contribute to their better nutritional properties. Expand
Ionic liquids as solvents for biopolymers: Acylation of starch and zein protein
Abstract Biopolymers such as starch and zein protein were found to be soluble at 80 °C in ionic liquids such as 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride (BMIMCl) and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazoliumExpand
Dissolution of unmodified waxy starch in ionic liquid and solution rheological properties.
It was suggested that starch conformation in EMIMAc is similar to the one in water (compact ellipsoid) and the activation energy was calculated for starch-EMIMAc solutions and demonstrated to obey power-law concentration dependence. Expand
