Seeking individual or group who can make derivative from Rice glucose
Project Size 50,000 € · Deadline : 2020-08-06
Carbohydrates are abundantly available in nature and are produced in bulk amounts. Moreover, they are inexpensive and possess a high chemical as well as enantiomeric purity. focuses on sucrose and glucose as raw material. Although glucose is accessible in large amounts, few non-food applications have been developed. Fundamental research of conformational aspects in relation to their functional properties will result in directed development of new pathways to applications. Derivation of these carbohydrates enlarges the applicability for many purposes, such as detergents, surfactants, sequestrants and sweeteners. The solution required for this project is to produce derivatives from Glucose and convert glucose into valuable product citric acid D-glucitol, HFCS (high fructose corn syrup), gluconic acid, alkyl polyglucosides and others.
