Isolation and study of Starch and Starch composite Film from source Eleusine coracana

Authors(2) :-Kanchan K. Dharmadhikari, Sushma G. Sabharwal

Starch was extracted from the seeds of Ragi (Eleusine coracana). Starch was characterized by Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FTIR), Differential Scanning Calorimeter (DSC), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), and X-ray Diffraction (XRD). Starches, Starch -glycerol, Starch- glycerol-PVA composite film were prepared. The surface morphology was checked by SEM. Biodegradation of starch and starch composite film was studied by enzymatic hydrolysis also by soil degradation, which shows within 8 days the starch film was degraded completely.
