Fluorescence study on drying of iota-carrageenan gels at different temperatures prepared with various CaCl2 content
The influence of temperature and salt content on drying was investigated by using steady-state fluorescence (SSF) technique. Supporting gravimetric and volumetric measurements were also carried out during drying of gels ...
Epidemic models for phase transitions: application to a physical gel
(Taylor & Francis Ltd, 2017)
Carrageenan gels are characterized by reversible sol-gel and gel-sol transitions under cooling and heating processes and these transitions are approximated by generalized logistic growth curves. We express the transitions ...
Critical Exponents of Thermal Phase Transitions of kappa-Carrageenan in Various Salt Solutions
(Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH, 2009)
The steady state fluorescence (SSF) technique was employed to study the phase transitions Of kappa-carrageenan in NaCl and KCl solutions. Pyranine was used as a fluorescence probe for monitoring these transitions. Scattered ...
Critical Exponents of Kappa Carrageenan in the Coil-Helix and Helix-Coil Hysteresis Loops
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2009)
The steady-state fluorescence technique was used to study coil-helix (sol-gel) and helix-coil (gel-sol) transitions of the kappa carrageenan-water system with various carrageenan contents. Fluorescence (I) and scattered ...
Kinetic models for the dynamical behavior of polyacrylamide (PAAm)-kappa-carrageenan (kappa C) composite gels
A fluorescence method was employed for studying the drying and swelling of PAAm-kappa C composite gels which were formed from acrylamide (AAm) and N N'- methylenebisacrylamide (BIS) with various kappa-carrageenan (kappa ...
