Abstract

Acetate, succinate and octenylsuccinate derivatives of galactomannans were prepared in anhydrous reaction conditions carried out at slightly elevated temperature (40-60C) using solid NaHCO3 as a mild base catalyst. Prior surface wetting of the reactants with approx. 5% absolute ethyl alcohol gave derivatives with a higher degree of substitution, although it decreased the slurry viscosity. Use of NaHCO3 significantly minimized high pH-induced degradative reactions, and its quantitative removal later was easily accomplished by repeated washings with aqueous ethyl alcohol. FTIR, 13C-NMR, HPSEC and SEM data provided additional structural information. These derivatives are useful as functional food ingredients. All rights reserved, Elsevier.
