Article Preview

Konjac Glucomannan (KGM) was modified by maleic anhydride (MA). The influences of processing parameters on the mechanical properties of KGM films were investigated through orthogonal experiments. The results showed that the effects of pH, temperature and time of KGM swelling on tensile strength and folding endurance of modified KGM membranes were insignificant (FF0.01). Folding endurance and tensile strength of KGM membranes could be improved by proper addition of MA. The optimum conditions of KGM modification were that the mixture of KGM and MA was swelling at pH 4.0 and 60°C for 2 h, and then cast on a flat and dried at 50°C to give modified KGM membranes.
