Modification of Biodegradable Polysaccharide

Modification of Biodegradable Polysaccharide

Researchers at CD BioGlyco are committed to providing a wide range of polysaccharide modification methods, including polysaccharide derivatization, grafting, crosslinking, and blending to help our clients prepare modified polysaccharides with desirable physicochemical properties and bioactivities.

Modification of Polysaccharides

As new materials emerge to meet the rapid increase of bioapplications, polysaccharides have been comprehensively explored due to their unique properties such as biocompatibility, bioactivity, and degradability. However, the bioactivity of natural polysaccharides has not always been in the condition of satisfaction. The bioactivities of polysaccharides and their physicochemical properties are directly or indirectly restricted by their structure. Therefore, some methods to modify the structure of polysaccharides are the fundamental way to solve these problems.

Molecular modification of polysaccharides is a method of structurally modifying their molecules by physical, chemical, and biological means to obtain numerous structural types of derivatives. Molecular modifications can enhance the biological activity of natural polysaccharides or give rise to new activities of polysaccharides by changing their spatial structure, molecular weight, and the type, position, and number of substituents. This will allow better study of the structure-activity relationships and enrich the range of polysaccharide compounds, providing more options for screening biological activity or specific polysaccharide agents.
