Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and X-ray diffraction (XRD) methods were used to determine if corn starch-glacial acetic acid mixtures can be melted and thermally processed at reasonable temperatures. DSC studies showed that the melting temperature of dry starch was reduced from about 280 to 180degreeC in the presence of >30% acetic acid. Glass transition temperatures varied from 110 to 40 ...
