Acid catalysed hydrolysis

Topic Progress:


Acid-catalysed hydrolysis proceeds in a random fashion.

Depending on the conditions applied, stopping the reaction at any particular time will yield a product comprising predictable amounts of glucose and its oligomers smaller than starch.

Thus the hydrolysate will include:

  • some dextrose,
  • some maltose,
  • some maltotriose,
  • some maltotetraose, and so on.
