Abstract

A series of starch-nicotinic acid copolymers with a degree of esterification ranging from about 15% to about 90% was prepared, and the stability in solution of two representative samples of the series was tested. The variation of some physico-chemical characteristics in the series was examined by solubility tests, viscometry and refractometry, and found to be not simply correlatable to the nicotinylation degree.
