    • Characterization of Polysaccharides in Starch using Fluorescence Techniques 

      Li, Lu (University of Waterloo, 2020-09-25)
      Amylose and amylopectin, which are the two main constituents of starch, were characterized using the pyrene excimer fluorescence (PEF) technique. First, an amylose sample was randomly labeled with the dye pyrene to yield ...
    • Hydrophobic Modification of Starch 

      Amos, Ryan (University of Waterloo, 2019-08-27)
      Starch is a very common polysaccharide with multiple applications in the industry, but the range of physical properties exhibited by that material is relatively limited due to its strongly hydrophilic character. The work ...
    • Synthesis and Characterization of Thermoresponsive Starch Nanoparticles 

      Zheng, Bowei (University of Waterloo, 2016-08-31)
      Thermoresponsive polymers (TRPs) are polymers that exhibit an abrupt change in their physical properties, such as solubility, with a change in temperature. The vast majority of TRPs produced to date are synthetic and ...
    • Thermoresponsive Starch Nanoparticles 

      Karski, Magdalena (University of Waterloo, 2015-04-27)
      Thermosensitive or thermoresponsive polymers (TRPs) that undergoes an abrupt change in aqueous solubility with temperature have numerous potential commercial applications. The vast majority of TRPs reported to date are ...
