Starch Based Aerogels: Processing and Morphology

Starch, as an agro-sourced polymer, has received much attention recently due to its strong advantages such as low cost, wide availability, and biodegradability. In this chapter the different steps in the processing of starch based aerogels are discussed. We also focus on the morphological properties by discussing the porosity and SEM analysis of starch aerogels.
