- Carboxymethyl starch (CMS) could find application in many areas of industry. A review of synthesis methods of medium and high substituted CMS was presented. The influence of synthesis parameters on degree of substitution (DS) as well as reaction efficiency was described. The methodology of CMS physicochemical properties determination as well as the relation between CMS chemical characteristics (e.g. DS, amylose/amylopectin ratio) and its physicochemical properties was presented. Moreover, reported CMS applications were submitted.
