AN1311: Analysis of Linear and Branched Synthetic Amyloses by SEC-MALS

Synthetic Amyloses

Determination of branching in amylopectin, an important property affecting viscosity, stiffness and thermo-mechanical performance, requires a fully-linear amylose analog. This analysis may be performed with the help of synthetic amyloses.

This application note describes how synthetic amyloses from an enzymatic (phosphorolytic) reaction were checked for their linearity using SEC-MALS.
