Exopolysaccharides are sugar containing compounds that are produced inside the bacteria and secreted into the outer environment. Mainly they are the capsular materials of the bacteria being acting as protective layer in bacteria. Polysaccharides are said to have various applications in the field of medicine, food, agriculture and so on. The polysaccharide producing bacteria was obtained from the marine sediment region and was optimized for its production in the media. The mass production yielded about 2grams of polysaccharide. The polysaccharide was characterized using FT -IR, XRD and GC – MS.
