Abstract

Starch dextrins of different molecular sizes (DP n 311, 142 and 39) were prepared by hydrolyzing a high amylose maize starch in acidic alcohol solutions. The dextrins were dissolved in an aqueous dimethyl sulfoxide solution (90% DMSO), and then the solution was allowed to migrate down into n-butanol separated by a membrane filter. The complex was gradually formed between the dextrin and butanol, and precipitated in the butanol layer. The dextrin-butanol complex yielded V6-I type crystals with broad reflections (d-spacings 1.123, 0.657 and 0.429 nm) under X-ray diffractograms. Platelets of average length less than 100 nm, interspersed in amorphous matrices, were observed in complexes of DP n 311 and 142, but that of DP n 39 showed different morphology, and the formation of complexes was limited. By hydrolyzing the complex of DP n 311 with α-amylase, amorphous matrices were selectively removed, and crystallites of 23-72 nm showing a V6-I X-ray diffraction pattern were obtained. However, crystallites in complexes of DP n 142 and 39 were eroded by amylolysis, forming large aggregates.
