- ... An important strategy for a highly efficient method to esterify cassava starch with a long‐chain hydrophobic acyl group in aqueous solution was reinvestigated. Most of the published reports relied on the elevated reaction temperature in order to disperse and gelatinize starch which negatively affects the esterification. To promote the esterification completion within a short reaction time, lower r ...
