Hydrogels are usually prepared from hydrophilic polymers and when different types of polymers are blended or emulsified with an oil phase the resulting gel is usually known as a composite gel. The objective of this study was to analyze the water uptake characteristics of whey protein-polysaccharide containing composite hydrogels. Composite and composite emulsion gels were formulated in this study using whey protein, xanthan (XN), pectin (PC), alginate (AL), and sunflower oil. Water absorption of hydrogels was studied using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) relaxometry through transverse relaxation time (T-2) measurements, and Non-Negative-Least-Square (NNLS) analysis. Swelling ratios (SR) of different gels were determined. Swelling of the gels was also evaluated mathematically and water uptake of hydrogels was explained by the power law model and diffusion rate constants based on power law model were determined. Results showed that NMR relaxometry could be used to differentiate water uptake mechanisms of composite hydrogels.

This study describes the use of Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) relaxometry to understand the effect of pectin methyl esterase (PME) + CaCl2 infusion under different conditions on cell integrity of fresh-cut and frozen-thawed mangoes. Infusion experiments were performed at: atmospheric pressure, vacuum conditions of 50 kPa and 10 kPa. For NMR relaxometry experiments T-2 (spin-spin relaxation time), T-1 (spin-lattice-relaxation times) and 2D T-1-T-2 experiments were performed. Results showed that, as the se...
Effect of preparation parameters on the performance of conductive composite gas separation membranes
Gulsen, D; Hacarloglu, P; Toppare, Levent Kamil; Yılmaz, Levent (2001-02-15)
Mixed matrix composite membranes of a conducting polymer, polypyrrole (PPy), and an insulating polymer, polybisphenol-A-carbonate (PC) were prepared by a combined in-situ polymerization and solvent evaporation. Mixed matrix composite membranes were synthesized to combine the good gas transport properties of conductive polymer, PPy, with good mechanical properties of PC.
Effect of synthesis media pH and gel separation technique on properties of copper incorporated SBA-15 catalyst
Akti, Filiz; Balci, Suna; Doğu, Timur (2019-10-01)
Cu-SBA-15 catalysts were synthesized hydrothermally under acidic and slightly higher acidic conditions via solid separation by either gel filtration or evaporation. XRD (X-ray diffraction) patterns and HRTEM (high resolution transmission electron microscopy) images showed that metal loading caused little changes in the ordered structure of SBA-15. Characteristic structural SBA-15's bonds and acid sites were observed in FTIR (Fourier transform infrared) spectrums and synthesis under high pH was created chang...
Effect of d-psicose substitution on gelatin based soft candies: A TD-NMR study
Pocan, Pelin; İlhan, Esmanur; Öztop, Halil Mecit (Wiley, 2019-09-01)
Confectionary gels are considered as composite gel systems composed of high amount of sugar and gelling agent such as gelatin or starch. d-Psicose is classified as a type of rare sugar, which is a C-3 epimer of fructose and has 70% of the sweetness of sucrose with a caloric value of 0.39 kcal/g. Utilization of d-psicose in food products is gaining particular interest due to its low caloric value. In this study, gelatin-based soft candies were formulated, and the effect of d-psicose substitution was explored...
Effect of impact modifier on the properties of poly (ethylene terephthalate)-organoclay nanocomposites
Yılmazer, Ülkü; Alyamac, Elif (2006-11-30)
The effects of component concentrations and addition order of the components, on the final properties of ternary nanocomposites composed of amorphous poly (ethylene terephthalate) matrix, organically modified clay, and an ethylene / methyl acrylate / glycidyl methacrylate (E-MAGMA) terpolymer were studied. All formulations were prepared by melt compounding of the components with a two-step mixing procedure in a corotating twin-screw extruder. Considering the X-Ray Diffraction, SEM, impact and strain at brea...
