Publisher and Date:(European Polymer Federation, 2010)Phase transitions of kappa and iota carrageenan in KCl NaCl and CaCl2 solutions were separately studied during heating and cooling processes by using fluorescence technique. Scattered light I-SC and fluorescence intensity I was monitored against temperature to determine the critical transition temperatures and exponents. Kappa and iota carrageenans with monovalent (KCl NaCl) salt system presented only coil to double helix (c-h) and double helix to coil (h-c) transitions upon cooling and heating ...
Publisher and Date:(European Polymer Federation, 2011)Various polyacrylamide (PAAm) - Kappa Carrageenan (kappa C) composite gels were prepared from acrylamide (AAm) N N'- methylenebisacrylamide (BIS) and different kappa C contents by free radical crosslinking copolymerization in water. Pyranine (P) was introduced as a fluorescence probe and scattered light I-sc and fluorescence intensities I from these gels were monitored during drying at different temperature. The fluorescence intensity of pyranine increased as drying time is increased for all ...
