Commercial applications involving carbohydrates are increasingly requiring carbohydrate modification. Glycidylethers specifically change characteristics of the carbohydrate by crosslinking or attaching hydrophobic or hydrophilic chains. Examples of these glycidylethers include:
- Cellulose ethers such as hydroxyethyl cellulose (HEC), carboxymethyl cellulose (CMC) and ethylhydroxyethyl cellulose (EHEC)
- Starch and guar
