Publisher: Frontiers


The present work aims at developing and characterizing a modified galactomannan for the production of nano-sized micelles through the solvent diffusion method and its evaluation as a new carrier for hydrophobic compounds. Guar gum galactomannan was acetylated and a new polymer with different degrees of acetylation was obtained. The acetylation and substitution degree of the polymer was determined and characterized by means of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis. Galactomannan acetate (GA) was evaluated for development of micelles through the solvent diffusio ...
