Baking cake involves forming microstructures
Cake making incorporates mixing flour, sugar, margarine, egg and baking powder into a thick batter which is finally transformed by heating into a solid foam with characteristic microstructural elements. This session will discuss the characterization of cake microstructural features with an emphasis on the influence of the ingredients and mixing time. The application of an innovative experimental design will be outlined. The microstructural characterization is then used to explain the function of the product by interpreting its textural properties.
Phase separation behavior of new high performance commercial polymer for gas separation
The phase separation behaviour of Extem/solvent/water systems for various solvents and Extem/NMP/non-solvents systems for different type of coagulants were investigated. Ternary phase diagram of studied systems were constructed based on cloud point data by titration method at room temperature. In the first part, NMP, DMAc, DMF and DMSO were employed as solvent and water was used a coagulant. The cloud point curves from these systems showed that Extem/NMP/water and Extem/DMAO/water has the smallest and largest demixing gap, repectively.
Environmental savings in tomato production under optimal agrochemicals management: a modeling approach
The use of agrochemicals has been recognized as one of the main environmental burdens in agriculture. Actual management practices aggravate pollution issues due to overdosing and untimely applications, even more if farmers are reluctant to change their practices. The application of crop modeling coupled to environmental impact tools offers an alternative to analyze improved production scenarios. The objective of this study was to estimate the environmental savings due to optimized agrochemicals management for the tomato production in Colombia.
