A series of inulin derivatives were synthesized in aqueous solution using acyl chlorides with varying alkyl chain length (C10-C16). They were characterised using a number of techniques including MALDI TOF-MS, 1H NMR and FTIR and their degree of substitution determined. The solution properties of the hydrophobically modified inulins were investigated using… CONTINUE READING
