Abstract: The reactivity of cross-linked starch and microcrystalline cellulose at sulfation is reduced by their preliminary drying which is accompanied by formation of secondary intermolecular bonds. Due to its preswelling effect, dry N,N-dimethylformamide destroys partially the intermolecular bonds thus facilitating the preparation of sulfated derivatives. Sodium salts of sulfated cross-linked polysaccharides are stable in the air as well as in water. However, in an H form they submit to autohydrolysis with a subsequent loss of weight and deterioration of their colloid properties. Regarding the above-mentioned fact, the possibility of an application of sulfated cross-linked polysaccharides as ion exchangers seems to be limited.
