The potentials of adhesives production from cassava starch were investigated. Adhesive products from Manihot utilisima and Manihot palmate were compared with a commercial adhesive. Based on the results obtained, equations developed for optimum process conditions that would yield products comparable to the commercial process. The products obtained using these conditions were found to have relatively improved pot-life. There no noticeable changes in the properties of the products for the first 21 days.
