The subject is composed of lectures focused on the deepening of the theoretical knowledge in the field of chemistry of natural and modified polysaccharides and their practical application in various branches of industry. Individual lectures are dedicated to isolation, purification, physical properties, chemical modification and structural analysis of polysaccharides.

Syllabus -
Last update: Pátková Vlasta (15.10.2018)

The subject contains several blocks: (a) occurrence and importance of polysaccharides in Nature, (b) preparative and analytical aspects, (c) modification of polysaccharides, (d) physical properties and biological activities of polysaccharides, and (e) use of polysaccharides in food structure formation and in pharmacy.

Most of the lectures are devoted to the overview of industrially and medically important polysaccharides from plant, animal, fungal and microbial sources.

Questions related to isolation, purification and analysis of composition, structure and molecular weight of polysaccharides will be discussed. Polysaccharides will be described as hydrocolloids, i.e. their behaviour in an aqueous environment. Extensions to the use of polysaccharides through chemical or other modifications will be discussed. The active participation of PhD students will be focused on the research of polysaccharides relevant to their doctoral works.
