Abstract

The partial acid hydrolysis of potato amylose, followed by fractionation of the products on a column of charcoal-Celite, leads to the isolation in pure form of a series of linear dextrins of which maltose is the lowest typical member. Certain physical properties of the maltodextrins are described, together with an account of their hydrolysis by β-amylase.
