Carbohydrate Polymers | Year: 2017

In this review we highlight the progress in the synthesis of carbohydrate functionalized hybrid latex particles, focusing on different synthetic approaches which use carbohydrates as a surfactant/stabilizer, initiator, grafting site and/or as a macromonomer. These nanocomposites are receiving increasing attention in academia as well as in industry, due to increasingly stringent societal demands for biobased, biodegradable, and biocompatible materials. Furthermore, we will report on the use of nanostructured carbohydrate materials, such as cellulose nanocrystals, starch nanocrystals, and starch nanoparticles. These novel materials represent an interesting emerging field, and examples of latex nanocomposites have only recently been reported. It is the authors’ opinion that using carbohydrate materials for the synthesis and production of latex polymers will become of increasing importance as we move towards a more sustainable future. © 2017 Elsevier Ltd


The invention is directed to coating compositions comprising a pigment and starch dispersion of discrete crosslinked starch particles in an aqueous liquid. The dispersion may be used as coating color for paper. A preferred process of preparing said dispersion of starch particles comprises (a) obtaining a mixture of starch and an aqueous liquid; (b) processing the mixture using shear forces in the presence of a crosslinker in an extruder; and (c) injecting a hydroxylic liquid into the extruder and dispersing the mixture inside the extruder or outside the extruder or both inside and outside the extruder to obtain the dispersion.

Starch dispersions comprising discrete particles of crosslinked cationic starch in an aqueous liquid can be used in papermaking. They can be used as a wet-end additive or in surface coating. The starch dispersions can be prepared by a process comprise: (a) obtaining a mixture of cationic starch and an aqueous liquid, (b) processing the mixture using shear forces in the presence of a crosslinker: and (c) adding and mixing in a hydroxylic liquid to obtain the starch dispersions.

This specification describes a composition for coating on a substrate, such as paper, useful for inkjet printing with ink having an anionic dye. The coating comprises a cationic binder and preferably pigment. The binder may be made of latex forming cationic biopolymer particles, for example made from cationic starch. Cationic biopolymer polymers are used as a cationic fixative. Optionally, a salt with a polyvalent metal ion may be added top the composition. With this addition, the substrate is also suitable for printing with dispersed pigment based inkjet ink.

This specification relates to cold-set biobased adhesive compositions, comprising aqueous formulations of biopolymers, optionally with alkaline additives, optionally fortified with high-aspect-ratio inorganic and organic fillers, fibers and nanofibers, optionally with barrier-inducing additives. The adhesive may be used, for example, as a cold-set, preferably biobased, laminating adhesive. In particular, the laminating adhesive may be used to create liner and/or medium paperboard products for light-weight paperboard and corrugated boxboard materials that, in some examples, have enhanced strength and/or barrier properties as compared with similar weight paperboard products. These laminated paperboard and corrugated boxboard materials are used, for example, as light weight packaging materials that are compatible with paper recycling and composting operations. In the context of this abstract, the term lamination or laminating relates to the adhesion of two flat (rather than pre-corrugated) paper surfaces, i.e. the gluing together of two continuous sheets of paper or liner or medium paperboard.
