Dielectric properties of potato flour-water dispersions (slurry) were measured in the frequency range of 500-2500 MHz by the open-ended coaxial probe method using a network analyzer as a function of concentration (10-25% w/w) and temperature (20-75 degrees C). Both commercial and laboratory prepared samples of potato flours were used. Results indicated that the dielectric constant (') decreased with temperature and frequency while increased with concentration. The loss factor ('') increased with frequency and concentration; however, temperature showed mixed effect. Both ' and '' data in conventionally used microwave frequencies (915 and 2450 MHz) were studied as function of concentration and temperature for two sample types using a response surface methodology and found to follow 2(nd) order polynomial models. Temperature and concentration contributed significantly on dielectric spectra of potato slurry and the sample source had some effect. A change in ' and '' above 70 degrees C could be attributed by starch gelatinization. Penetration depth (D(p)) decreased with an increase in frequency and non-systematic with temperature. Addition of salt substantially reduced D(p) of potato slurry.

Dielectric properties of six different species of starch at 2450 MHz
Ndife, MK; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm; Bayindirli, L (1998-01-01)
Dielectric properties at 2450 MHz were determined for tapioca, corn, wheat, rice, waxymaize and amylomaize starches in granular (moisture content 1 and 13%) and in solution forms [starch-water ratio:1:1, 1:1.5, 1:2 (w/w)] at temperatures from 30 to 95 degrees C. Dielectric, properties were shown to be dependent on temperature, moisture content and starch type. The increase in moisture content increased dielectric constant and loss factor of all types of starches. Increasing temperatures decreased the dielec...
Iso-vector Form Factors of the Delta and Nucleon in QCD Sum Rules
Özpineci, Altuğ (2012-06-21)
Form factors are important non-perturbative properties of hadrons. They give information about the internal structure of the hadrons. In this work, iso-vector axial-vector and iso-vector tensor form factors of the nucleon and the iso-vector axial-vector Delta -> N transition form factor calculations in QCD Sum Rules are presented.

Speciation and preconcentration of inorganic tellurium from waters using a mercaptosilica microcolumn and determination by hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry
Korez, A; Eroglu, AE; Volkan, Mürvet; Ataman, Osman Yavuz (2000-12-01)
A separation-preconcentration method utilising a mercapto-modified silica microcolumn was developed for the determination of trace amounts of Te(rv) and Te(VI) in waters by hydride generation atomic absorption spectrometry. Bottled drinking water, tap water and sea-water samples were spiked with sub-ng ml(-1) concentrations of Te(IV) and the spiked solutions were subjected to the mercapto-modified silica microcolumn separation and enrichment procedure. The spike recovery values varied between 86 and 114%. I...
Thermal analysis of electroinitiated and radiation induced poly(epoxycyclopentanes) and poly(epoxycyclohexanes) by mass spectrometry
Hacaloğlu, Jale; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (1995-01-01)
Thermal behaviour of electroinitiated and radiation induced poly(epoxycyclopentanes), PECP, and poly(epoxycyclohexanes), PECH, have been studied by a direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. The mechanism of thermal degradation of the samples prepared by electroinitiation was found to be a radical depolymerization mechanism yielding mainly monomer. The broader temperature ranges of thermal decomposition in the case of polymer samples prepared by irradiation may be attributed to more complicated degrada...
