Abstract:
Biopolymers produced from natural resources used in food, pharmaceutical, textile, cosmetic and leather industries etc. As it is evident by earlier studies, it is safe for human consumption having the properties of emulsifier, stabilizer and binder. Therefore, the characterization of three biopolymers extracted from Dhawara (Anogeissus latifolia), Salai (Boswellia serrata Roxb.) and Chironji (Buchanania lanzan Spreng) in two experimental year 2018-19 and 2019-20 at Balrampur (North Chhattisgarh Region) was done to analyze the physico-chemical properties. The tested physicochemical parameters were: moisture and ash contents, nitrogen, protein, pH and tannin content. The analysis results showed: 4.21, 4.01 and 1.42% ash content, 4.10, 4.36 and 4.77 pH values, 4.59, 2.89 and 5.69% protein, 0.74, 0.46 and 0.91% nitrogen, 12.83, 9.77 and 18.33% moisture content, 8.12, 3.14 and 7.61% tannin, 1.38, 0.71 and 1.03% phenol content for Anogeissus latifolia, Buchanania lanzan Spreng. and Boswellia serreta Roxb respectively. SEM (Scanning electron microscopy) analyzed for element composition using EDX system indicated that Ca, K and Mg were the major elements of all the three gums.
