© 2021 Institute of Food Technologists®Abstract: The study was aimed to investigate characteristics of emulsion containing pectin, wax, maltodextrin, and carotenoid enriched flaxseed oil by means of stability, rheology, particle size, and low-resolution of time domain nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) relaxometry measurements. Emulsions were prepared with different carotenoid enriched-flaxseed oil concentrations (6%, 9%, 12%, and 15% w/w) and ratios of maltodextrin/(pectin+wax) (3:1, 6:1, 9:1, and 12:1 g/g). Percentage separation of 12% oil 12:1 ratio of maltodextrin/(pectin+wax) (g/g), 15% oil 9:1, and 12:1 ratios of maltodextrin/(pectin+wax) (g/g) of emulsions was determined as 2.0 ± 0.5%, 4.0 ± 0.5%, and 8.0 ± 0.5%, respectively. No separation was observed in other emulsions. The rheological behavior of emulsions was best described by the power law model. When the concentration of pectin+wax in the emulsion decreased, the n values of the emulsions were close to 1, indicating that the fluid behavior approaches Newtonian behavior. Moreover, the emulsion viscosity was observed to increase when pectin and wax concentrations in the emulsion increased. The increase in pectin and wax concentration in emulsions with oil contents of 6% and 9% resulted in a reduction in the average particle size. However, if the oil concentration in the emulsions was 12% or more, the increase in the ratio of maltodextrin/(pectin+wax) (g/g) led to a decrease in the average particle size. NMR transverse relaxation times (T2) of emulsions were measured and results showed that T2 values for almost all formulations decreased when the ratio of maltodextrin/(pectin+wax) reduced. Practical Application: Study results demonstrated that the combination of pectin and wax together with maltodextrin as a filling material could be an alternative way to improve emulsion stability. Findings of this study provided useful guidance for the future studies about the potential use of pectin, wax, and maltodextrin as wall material in encapsulation of oils or in producing edible films.

The effect of triethanolamine on thermal decomposition of GAP
Fazhoğlu, Hatice; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2002-01-01)
The effect of triethanolamine (TEA) on thermal behavior of glycidyl azide polymer (GAP) has been investigated by direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry technique. It has been observed that thermal degradation of GAP-TEA mixture also begins with the cleavage of the side groups as in the case of GAP. Again, the main decomposition started with the elimination of molecular nitrogen from the azide functional group, and a quite similar degradation mechanism has been proposed. The increase in the thermal stability of ...
The effect of torrefaction, slow, and fast pyrolysis on the single particle combustion of agricultural biomass and lignite coal at high heating rates
Magalhães, Duarte; Gürel, Kaan; Kazanç Özerinç, Feyza (2022-01-15)
The present paper studies single particle combustion of olive residue (OR), almond shell (AS), and Tunçbilek lignite (TL) and their thermal pre-treated particles in a vertical wire mesh reactor (WMR) setup. Pre-treatment of the fuels was done via torrefaction, slow, and fast pyrolysis. The particles with different masses were heated to 1000 °C by radiation with a heating rate of 900 °C/s. The combustion process was recorded with a high-speed camera. The time analysis demonstrated that the particle mass and ...
The Effect of Ultrasonication on the Size and Morphology of Iron Oxide - Chitosan Nano and Microparticles
Akin, Deniz; YAKAR, ARZU; Gündüz, Ufuk (2013-04-28)
The aim of this study is to synthesize magnetic Fe3O4-chitosan nano and microparticles (Fe3O4-CPs) by suspension cross-linking and ionic gelation methods and investigate the effect of ultrasonication on the size, morphology and magnetic properties. The synthesized particles were characterized by transmission electron microscopy (TEM), dynamic light scattering (DLS) and vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM). The results showed that the ultrasonication decreased the mean particle diameter and enhanced magnetic ...
The effects of zinc nitrate, zinc acetate and zinc chloride precursors on investigation of structural and optical properties of ZnO thin films
BACAKSIZ, EMİN; Parlak, Mehmet; TOMAKİN, MURAT; Ozcelik, A.; Karakiz, M.; Altunbas, M. (2008-10-20)
ZnO thin films were prepared using zinc chloride, zinc acetate and zinc nitrate precursors by spray pyrolysis technique oil glass substrates at 550 degrees C. Structural and optical properties of ZnO films were investigated by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM) and optical transmittance spectra. Regardless of precursors, ZnO thin films are all in hexagonal crystallographic phase and have to (0 0 2) preferred orientation. SEM images show completely different surface morphologies for ...
