Analysis of Foods and Beverages

Headspace Techniques

 

Academic Press, 1978.

ISBNs 9780121690502

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Analysis of Foods and Beverages Headspace Techniques covers the proceedings of a symposium on the analysis of foods and beverages by headspace techniques. The symposium is organized by the Flavor Subdivision of the Agricultural and Food Chemistry Division of American Chemical Society at its 174th National Meeting held on August 29-September 2, 1977 in Chicago, Illinois. It highlights methods of headspace concentration and headspace sampling that are producing results on a variety of products and model systems.
Composed of 14 chapters, this book discusses a productive combination of techniques leading to the enrichment of headspace vapor components with gas chromatographic resolution followed by mass spectrometric identification. Core chapters address the analysis by headspace techniques of mouth odors, vegetable flavors, lipoxygenase catalyzed reactions, the vanilla bean, coffee, tea, cocoa, beer, wine, and sake. Finally, the book examines the use and abuse of headspace sampling, statistical treatments of GLC headspace data, as well as quantitative aspects, new instrumentation, and techniques.
Flavor chemists and researchers will find this book invaluable.

Analysis of Growth

Behavior of Plants and their Organs

 

Academic Press, 1969.

ISBNs 9780123955166

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés): Plant Physiology, Volume VA: Analysis of Growth: Behavior of Plants and their Organs describes the main events of growth as seen through the behavior of plants and their organs at an organismal level. This book discusses the quantitative interpretation of growth; the effects of environmental factors; the treatment of tropism; and the effects of many exogenous growth-regulating compounds.
Organized into five chapters, the book initially describes mathematically the plant growth mechanisms as they relate to the factors that determine morphogenesis. The text also discusses methods for assessing the effects of external conditions and of age on certain important physiological aspects of plant growth. The subsequent chapter deals with phyllotaxis as a selected aspect of the interpretation of growth and form. The third chapter describes various phototropically and geotropically sensitive systems impinge upon on plant growth. This chapter also covers some reversible nastic movements of organs and the tactic movements of free swimming cells. The next chapter deals with relations between the chemical structure of synthetic compounds and their biological action. The last chapter focuses on the modulation of growth and development by features of the environment and also upon experimental manipulation and under controlled conditions of growth.
This volume is an invaluable resource for plant biologists, physiologists, and researchers.
