Natural polymers are frequently selected to compose drug delivery systems, since they easily comply with the mandatory requisites of biocompatibility, biodegradability and non-toxicity. Carboxyl and sulfate derivatives of Locust Bean Gum, a galactomannan-based polysaccharide abundant at the Portuguese region of Algarve, were obtained in order to..
