The high degree of chemical functionality of starch, due to the presence of hydroxyl groups allows its chemical modification, generating a wide range of materials with interesting properties for use in biomedical and pharmaceutical areas. Apart from the demand it enjoys in the research, field, starch has also found a consolidated demand in pharmaceutical industry, mainly for use as excipient in solid formulations like tablets and powder presentations. However, many starch-based products have been developed for uses in tissue engineering, drug delivery and wound healing, including its chemical modification.
