The hexa, duodeca and hexadeca acetyl derivatives of tamarind seed jellose have been prepared by treatment with acetic anhydride under different conditions. Boiling glacial acetic acid also effects partial acetylation. Some of the acetyl derivatives in appropriate solvents give fairly strong, flexible, glossy and transparent films, which adhere to glass, metallic and also wooden surfaces. They may also be useful as thermoplastic resins on account of their wide melting range.
