A preliminary investigation of caramelisation and isomerisation of allulose at medium temperatures and alkaline pHs: a comparison study with other monosaccharides

Allulose, also known as rare sugar, is a very reactive monosaccharide in browning reactions. In this study, the caramelisation of allulose was investigated for the first time. To study caramelisation, sugar solutions (glucose, fructose and allulose) were prepared with distilled water and buffer solutions at pH 7, 10, 12 and were freeze-dried afterwards. To let caramelisation occur, samples were incubated at 55% relative humidity (RH) and 50 °C. Results showed that samples prepared with pH 10 and pH 12 buffer solutions resulted in a higher browning rate than samples prepared with distilled water (DW) and pH 7 buffer solution. Moreover, according to HPLC and total reducing sugar content results, allulose (Allu) samples had the lowest remaining reducing sugar (RRS) amount, indicating that Allu samples depleted more in the reaction. Overall, the approach followed in this study can be considered as a novel strategy to obtain allulose-containing caramel-like products more efficiently than conventional methods.

A review of the biogeochemical controls on the occurrence and distribution of polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) in coals
Wang, Ruwei; Sun, Ruoyu; Liu, Guijian; Yousaf, Balal; Wu, Dun; Chen, Jian; Zhang, Hong (2017-08-01)
The organic matter in coal contains polycyclic aromatic compounds (PACs) of varying quantities in diverse soluble and insoluble forms. PACs in coal are of special interest for organic geochemical studies because they have been successfully used as biological marker compounds (biomarkers) and indicators of thermal maturity. In addition, they could provide critical information to understand the structural and compositional evolution of the coal organic matters during coalification, and to predict PAC releasin...
A new and short synthesis of 7H-benzo[a]cyclohepten-7-one and some derivatives: Oxidation of 7-bromo-5H-benzo[a]cycloheptene
Dastan, A; Yildiz, YK; Balcı, Metin (Informa UK Limited, 2001-01-01)
Oxidation of 7-bromo-5H-benzo[a]cycloheptene with some oxidation reagents has been studied. Several 2,3- and 4,5-benzotropone derivatives has been obtained. The structures of the products were determined by H-1-, (CNMR)-C-13 data and chemical transformation.
A novel synthesis of 1,2,4-oxadiazoles and isoxazoles
KIVRAK, Arif; Zora, Metin (Elsevier BV, 2014-01-28)
A novel synthesis of 1,2,4-oxadiazoles and isoxazoles is described by utilizing the reactions between amidoximes and alpha,beta-alkynic aldehydes and/or ketones. Conjugate addition products, obtained from amidoximes and alpha,beta-alkynic aldehydes and/or ketones, afford 1,2,4-oxadiazoles and isoxazoles when treated with bases and acids, respectively. 1,2,4-Oxadiazoles can also be synthesized directly from amidoximes and alpha,beta-alkynic aldehydes in a one-pot manner under basic conditions. The reactions ...
Production of an acetone-butanol-ethanol mixture from Clostridium acetobutylicum and its conversion to high-value biofuels
Sreekumar, Sanil; Baer, Zachary C.; Pazhamalai, Anbarasan; Günbaş, Emrullah Görkem; Grippo, Adam; Blanch, Harvey W.; Clark, Douglas S.; Toste, F. Dean (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-03-01)
Clostridium acetobutylicum is a bacterial species that ferments sugar to a mixture of organic solvents (acetone, butanol and ethanol). This protocol delineates a methodology to combine solventogenic clostridial fermentation and chemical catalysis via extractive fermentation for the production of biofuel blendstocks. Extractive fermentation of C. acetobutylicum is operated in fed-batch mode with a concentrated feed solution (500 grams per liter glucose and 50 grams per liter yeast extract) for 60 h, producin...
Partial purification and characterization of neutral trehalase from commercial baker's yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae
Yarar, S; Hamamcı, Haluk; Bakir, U (2000-12-01)
The neutral trehalase of a commercial baker's yeast (S. cerevisiae) strain has been partially purified using ammonium sulfate fractionation and DEAE-cellulose column chromatography techniques. Trehalase was precipitated between 35-50% ammonium sulfate saturation and approximately 5-8 fold purification was achieved. The yeast cAMP-dependent protein kinase was also precipitated in the same fraction and these two proteins were separated by DEAE-cellulose column chromatography. Trehalase became totally inactive...
