- ... A series of phosphate-modified Konjac was synthesized by esterification of natural polysaccharide Konjac, and comparative studies were conducted to examine the flocculation efficiency and biodegradability for the modified and unmodified products. It is found that both modified derivatives and the unmodified parent show flocculation ability and biodegradability. However, within the polymer concentr ...
