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
