Dextrin and related polysaccharides are generally used as depressants/ dispersants in various mineral processing operations. Interaction of dextrin on calcium minerals both in the presence and absence of oleate was studied in the present investigation. The mechanism of dextrin adsorption at mineral / water interface was investigated by adsorption, contact angle and zeta potential measurements. The role of dextrin in the separation of fluorite by flotation has been discussed.
