Carbohydrate Modification

Commercial applications involving carbohydrates are increasingly requiring carbohydrate modification. Glycidylethers specifically change characteristics of the carbohydrate by crosslinking or attaching hydrophobic or hydrophilic chains. Examples of these glycidylethers include:

  • Cellulose ethers such as hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC), carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and ethylhydroxyethyl cellulose (EHEC)
  • Starch and guar

SACHEM commercially supplies carbohydrate modifiers.
