Cereals are richly assorted; over 10,000 forms convert minerals and the power of the solar right into a bursting catalog of sensible and flexible biomolecules and biopolymers. Processing expertise permits those parts to be accessed, separated, remoted and purified, whereas chemical technology permits amendment for even larger variety and speci­ ficity. The final century has obvious the circulation from cereal- to oil-based chemical and fabrics industries. yet cereals include a wider variety and performance of macromolecules than oil. Starch, protein, bran and straw, already varied throughout cereal forms, could be fraction­ ated into extra particular components, transformed chemically to reinforce functionality, or used as feedstocks in fermentation-based bioconversion structures, to provide a number bulk and fantastic chemical compounds for industries as assorted as meals, prescription drugs, plastics, textiles, pulp and paper, shipping, composites and forums, adhesives and effort.

Coating starch-based articles with water resistant coatings shows great promise in solving the water sensitivities of these type of objects. Hydrophobic polymers that would be good to use as water resistant coatings do not adhere well to starch (Lawton, 1995). The peel strength for films of PHBV, PLA and PCL cast onto the starch trays are shown in Table 1. Peel strength of these films increase on the order of PHBV

The amount of water was varied to maintain the same isocyanate index in each formulation (Table 2). Two replicate foams were produced with each foam formulation. Table 2. 3. Foam Preparation Foams were prepared by adding a mixture of toluene diisocyanate, dibutyltin dilaurate and stannous octoate (component B) to a premix of glycerol-propylene oxide polyether triol, tertiary amine, corn starch, triethanolamine, and distilled water (component A). A standard mixing procedure for making foams was used in this study (Bailey and Critchfield, 1981).

The compression set value was calculated as follows: C = ( T ? - T f ) x 100% T0 where C=compression set expressed as a percentage of the original thickness, To=original thickness of test specimen, and T f =fmal thickness of test specimen. Three samples were tested and the median was reported. 5. Data Analyses A Least Significant Difference rule was applied to compare the means of the foam properties of different treatments and different types of biomass (soybean fibre, isolated soybean protein, and corn starch).
