Synthesis and properties of composites of starch and chemically modified natural rubber

  title={Synthesis and properties of composites of starch and chemically modified natural rubber},
  author={A. Rouilly and L. Rigal and R. Gilbert},
Abstract A means is developed for forming polysaccharide-based composites with useful material properties through use of unmodified and chemically modified natural rubber latex (NRL). Starch was used as a model for polysaccharides. The NRL was modified by grafting with dimethylaminoethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA) to form a latex with cationic water-soluble polymeric ‘hairs’ of polyDMAEMA, which should form hydrogen bonds with starch. Starch solutions, containing 20% glycerol as a film-forming aid… Expand
