Abstract

Polymer complexes formed by schizophyllan and poly(C) showed a unique antihydrolysis effect when poly(C) was subjected to hydrolysis under basic conditions. The complexation reduced the hydrolysis rate to 80% of the control (i.e., poly(C) itself). However, when we added oligoamines with the intention of catalyzing the hydrolysis, the oligoamines induced dissociation of the complex instead of acceleration of the hydrolysis.
