MOLEULAR WEIGHT AND AMYLOSE/AMYLOPETIN RATION OF THE STARCH FROM GLADIOLUS ACTINOMORPHANTUS
AbstractGladiolus actinomorphantus starch is oval with single, double and triple rayed clefts with a molecular weight of 5.85x103. The amylose/amylopectin ration shows that the starch is composed mainly of amylopectin (91.05%)
Key Words: Gladiolus actinomorphantus, Iridiaceae, starch, molecular weight, amylose/amylopectin ratio.
