Title : Synthesis and applications of biodegradable polymers based on starch and dextrin


The biodegradable polymer are the next generation and newly emerging field in green materials. It has been used more than 50 years for various applications. The synthetic flexibility and elastic features of these polymers to considered in accordance with make them attractive for numerous therapeutic approaches. The biodegradable polymer mainly classified to synthetic and natural polymers. The natural polymer gives many advances over synthetic polymer. Many biodegradable polymers are produced from feedstock derived either from petroleum or biological resources. The biodegradable polymers are designed to degrade upon disposal by the action of living micro-organisms. Biodegradable polymers are used in agriculture, medicine and other areas. However, starch and dextrin are carbohydrate based biodegradable polymers have been used for many applications such as surfactant and detergent. The starch and dextrin based biodegradable detergent can be easily prepared as it comes under renewable sources over petroleum-based polymer. In view of above application, in the present time it requires to generate alternative biodegradable water-soluble polymers such as detergents and cosmetics etc. In addition, the various liquid-based bio-detergents act as ecofriendly polymer were showing significant surfactant results which decrease surface tension of water, foam volume etc
In above opinion, here I will present the various synthesis method for biodegradable based detergent which are mainly prepared using starch, dextrin-based compound. The novel and ecofriendly methods were followed to formulate the biodegradable detergent. The various characterization techniques and methods were used to identify it. This work also explains various biodegradable polymers with details on properties, mode of its degradation and the potential biomedical applications associated with them.

Audience Take Away:

  • Audience will explore in the field of green chemistry and learn more towards biodegradable polymer.
  • The listener may explore to setup their own creativity to synthesis new recyclable polymer which will help to get job in green company work on environment protection.
  • Yes, the faculty can expand their research and teaching in the field of biodegradable based polymer.


Dr. Dontulwar studied Master of Science (MSc) in chemistry at the Rashtrashant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University, Nagpur, India in 1995. He then joined as ad hoc faculty in Priyadarshani College of Engineering and teaches to Undergraduate student. After that he joined research group at Rashtrashant Tukadoji Maharaj University and completed his doctorate degree with title “Studies in Novel Eco Friendly Polymers” in 2007. He published more than 30 research articles in international and national journal. After Doctorate he joined as a Principal and Professor for five years at Jawaharlal Nehru Arts commerce college wadi Nagpur. Currently he working as a Professor and Principal at shri Mathuradas Mohota College of Science, Nagpur.
