"So lengthy as an individual is able to self renewal they seem to be a dwelling being. " -Amiel Cereals were the resource of existence to the human race, delivering dietary and ma­ terial wishes because the sunrise of civilization. as with any dynamic industries, the Cereal in­ dustry has renewed itself some time past; because the millennium methods, it's close to one other renewal, during which the flexibility and windfall of cereals are being rediscovered, yet in new and intriguing methods. Cereals are richly assorted; over 10,000 types convert minerals and the power of the sunlight right into a bursting catalog of sensible and flexible biomolecules and biopolymers. Processing expertise permits those elements to be accessed, separated, remoted and purified, whereas chemical technological know-how permits amendment for even higher range and speci­ ficity. The final century has obvious the circulation from cereal- to oil-based chemical and fabrics industries. yet cereals comprise a greater diversity and performance of macromolecules than oil. Starch, protein, bran and straw, already different throughout cereal kinds, may be fraction­ ated into extra particular components, transformed chemically to reinforce functionality, or used as feedstocks in fermentation-based bioconversion structures, to supply a variety of bulk and wonderful chemical compounds for industries as diversified as foodstuff, prescribed drugs, plastics, textiles, pulp and paper, shipping, composites and forums, adhesives and effort.

Lawton Plant Polymer Research National Center for Agricultural Utilization Research Agricultural Research Service, US Department of Agriculture 1815 North University Street, Peoria, Illinois 61604 1. INTRODUCTION Over the last few years, there has been renewed interest in biodegradable plastics made from annually renewable, natural polymers such as starch (see Chapters 1, 2, 5 and 10).

The polymer coating was peeled of the film at 180° angle during testing. 8 mm/minute. 1 mm. 4. RESULTS AND DISCUSSION There was great improvement in the water sensitivity of both the coated films and the coated trays after water immersion. 5 g of water. Uncoated trays almost absorbed their weight in water. The same was true for coated films where water absorption was quite high for the uncoated film. 8 g of water in the same time frame. Coated films of PHBV and PCL could not be tested because these polymers spontaneously delaminated from the films upon drying.

Other esters such as methyl isopropyl, isoamyl and 2-pentanol esters of levulinic acid have been described as solvents for synthetic glass like resins (Stampa, 1939). Pseudo esters have been used as paint removers, solvents and lacquers. Other uses of esters are as constituents of hydraulic-brake fluids and as solvent for the extraction of glyceride oils such as linseed oil, soybean and fish oil (Fulton, 1935). Diphenolic acid, the condensation product of levulinic acid and phenol, is useful in the preparation of the modified phenol formaldehyde resins, polyether resins and as monocarboxilic acid chain stopper in alkyd resin (Bader, 1960).
