Abstract
Sugar esters (SEs), value-added products derived from inexpensive renewable feedstocks (sugars and fatty acids), are biobased and biocompatible surfactants employed in foods, personal care products, and pharmaceuticals. They also possess antimicrobial and other biological activities. Their market size is projected to be $74.6 million by 2020. SEs are difficult to synthesize due to the poor miscibility of acyl donor and acceptor reactants and the challenges associated with water activity control during the time course of reaction and controlling the selectivity of the reaction. In this chapter, the catalytic and enzymatic syntheses of SEs in the presence of solvent and under solvent-free conditions are reviewed, in addition to properties... (More)
