General description

The molecule of succinic anhydride consists of 3, 4, and 5 triangles and each triangle is a part of three carbon molecules forming a zigzag structure.


Succinic anhydride was used in the preparation of covalently cross-linked oxidized-alginate/N-succinyl-chitosan hydrogels, as injectable systems towards tissue engineering. It was also used in preparing functionalized oxide surfaces on a chip.

Chemotherapeutic drugs used for cancer therapy frequently encounter multiple-drug resistance (MDR). Nanoscale carriers that can target tumors to accumulate and release drugs intracellularly have the greatest potential for overcoming MDR. Glucose transporter-1 (GLUT-1) and glutathione (GSH) overexpression in cancer cells...

Particle-stabilised emulsions, so-called Pickering emulsions, are known to possess many beneficial properties, including being extremely stable. Starch granules isolated from quinoa have been used as emulsion stabilising particles. The granules were intact, 1-3 µm in diameter and modified with octenyl...
