Biocompatible functionalisation of starch
The enzyme catalysed esterification of starch and fatty acids with terminal triple bonds is described. This material can be used as an acceptor for azide containing molecules, through azide/alkyne cycloaddition. The potential is illustrated by the production of fluorescently-labelled starch, and a biotinylated derivative which can bind streptavidin.
