Starch Profiling

Background

Starch is the main carbohydrate in many It is a polymerized carbohydrate composed of multiple glucose units interconnected by α-1,4-glycosidic bonds and α-1,6-glycosidic bonds. Starch molecules (called starch granules) are usually deposited in plants as discrete semi-crystalline aggregates, the most important energy reserve in plants.

Starch plays a very important role in plant growth and development. In addition, it is also used as food for humans and animals, industrial raw materials, and expanded to many fields such as packaging and drug delivery. For example, starch can be used as a thickener and binder, and can also be used to produce various bioplastics. Its unique microstructure and characteristics provide an excellent model for scientific research. Research on starch can help us explore the relationship between polymer processing and performance, thereby increasing the knowledge of polymer science, especially natural polymers. Highly selective purification and comprehensive analysis of starch are crucial for research. Although there is no single all-around method, a variety of techniques for analyzing complex carbohydrates have been developed.
