Promising properties of superabsorbent polymers (SAPs) have been attached to many industrial sectors. These brilliant materials have their super ability to absorb and hold large amounts of water or aqueous solutions without dissolving in it. However, current commercial SAPs found in market are putting much concern as they are non-environmentally friendly characteristic since they are mostly petrochemical-based. Hence, alternative natural-based SAPs has been receiving great attention due to its environmentally-friendly, especially polysaccharides. Regarding to its wide availability, relatively cost-effective, and simple preparation, wide-range utilization of cassava starch could be demonstrated. Beyond that, several factors, such as high swelling capacity and capability to form gel, cassava starch has privilege to be potential candidate of polysaccharides-based SAPs. However, still few published works relating to cassava starch utilization as SAPs based materials compared to any other starches. This review provides current reports of using cassava starch as SAPs materials, the properties, and the preparation techniques.
