Abstract

Modification and improvement of the published methods for the preparation of the two starch components, amylose and amylopectin, are described. Amylose is prepared by a combination of the methods using aluminium hydroxide and thymol (J., 1949, 1; 1948, 1687), and amylopectin by further fractionation with methanol of amylopectin prepared by the thymol method. Properties of typical preparations of these components are described.
