Poly(citrate glyceride): a hyperbranched polyester for starch plasticization

Poly(citrate glyceride): a hyperbranched polyester for starch plasticization Hyperbranched polyesters (HBPETs), terminated with either hydroxyl or carboxyl groups, were prepared from citric acid and glycerol in simple one‐step syntheses.

Abstract

Hyperbranched polyesters (HBPETs), terminated with either hydroxyl or carboxyl groups, were prepared from citric acid and glycerol in simple one‐step syntheses. The HBPET structure and degree of branching were investigated using Fourier transform infrared and 1H NMR spectroscopies and gel permeation chromatography. The HBPET plasticizers were combined with a maize starch via cooking and film formation. The mechanical, thermal, paste and structural properties of the plasticized starch composites were studied in detail using differential scanning calorimetry, thermogravimetric analysis, rapid viscosity analysis and X‐ray diffraction. The HBPETs reduced the pasting viscosity but slightly increased the pasting temperature of the starch. The smaller breakdown and setback values of the plasticized starch pastes relative to those of native starch suggested weaker retrogradation. Compared with glycerol/starch plasticized films, HBPET/starch composite films had lower crystallinity, lower glass transition temperature and better mechanical and thermal properties. The properties of the plasticized starch samples strongly depended on the terminal groups and the molecular weight of the HBPET plasticizers. © 2017 Society of Chemical Industry
