Etherification of Starch by 9-(2-chloroethyl)-carbazole
Published: 01 November 2005 by MDPI in The 9th International Electronic Conference on Synthetic Organic Chemistry session Bioorganic Chemistry and Natural Products
Abstract: The etherification of the most commonly used biopolymer i.e. starch in the Williamson reaction with 9-(2-chloroethyl)-carbazole is described. The potato starch was used as the polymeric substrate. The properties of etherate by means of degree of substitution, UV-VIS spectra, IR and the changes in molecular mass are described.
Keywords: starch; carbazole; etherification
