A flash extraction method was used to isolate Elaeagnus mollis oil (EMO). The optimal extraction parameters, sample/solvent ratio and extraction temperature, were determined to be 1:10 (g/mL) and 40°C, respectively. Especially, the extraction yield reached 49.30% when the extraction time was as short as 2 min. No obvious difference was observed in fatty acid composition, iodine value, saponification number, total phenolic content and tocopherol content between flash-extracted EMO and Soxhlet-extracted EMO, but their physicochemical values were lower than those of cold-pressed EMO...

Mayonnaise, which is widely used in foods, is rich in lipids and therefore susceptible to oxidation during the manufacturing process, which can result in loss of quality. Herein, we detected and analyzed phosphatidylcholine hydroperoxide (PCOOH) isomers present in fresh mayonnaise using LC-MS/MS. The PCOOH isomer composition suggests that mayonnaise phospholipid peroxidation is predominantly initiated by radical-oxidation (i.e. upon autoxidation), rather than singlet oxygen-oxidation (e.g. upon light exposure), during manufacturing, packaging and/or storage...

The addition of more than about 1 ppm polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) into oil results in PDMS forming both a layer at the oil-air interface and droplets suspended in the oil. It is widely accepted that the extraordinarily strong and stable antioxidative effects of PDMS are due to the PDMS layer. However, the PDMS layer showed no antioxidative effects when canola oil did not contain droplets but rather was covered with a layer of PDMS, then subjected to heating under high agitation to mimic deep-frying. Furthermore, no antioxidative effect was exhibited by oil-soluble methylphenylsiloxane (PMPS) in canola oil or by PDMS in PDMS-soluble canola oil fatty acid ester during heating, suggesting that PDMS must be insoluble and droplets in oil in order for PDMS to exhibit an antioxidative effect during deep-frying...

Here, we report the results of thermodynamic analyses on the lamellar-vesicular transition for a cationic amphiphilic species, namely 2-hydroxyethyl di(alkanol)oxyethyl methylammonium methylsulfate (DEAE). Previously, we have shown that spontaneous vesicle formation from a Lα-lamellar liquid crystal (LC) phase only occurs on the addition of a quantitative amount of additives to the DEAE LC at certain temperatures and that this change occurs without the input of any extra mechanical energy. These lamellar-vesicular transitions occur in two steps: the first step is the formation of an excited state, caused by the solubilization of organic substances in the bilayer structure...

Previously, we have shown that the fatty acid composition of Altay sheep tail fat is of reasonable value and is suitable for further development of possible commercial products. Changes in lipids of Altay sheep tail fat during 50 days of 4°C refrigerated storage were investigated. Lipid oxidation and lipolysis occurred during the storage. The pH showed a continually decreased from first day to the end of the storage (p < 0.05). The lipid oxidation was determined by peroxide value (PV) and thiobarbituric acid-reactive substances (TBARS)...

Interfacial tension between edible oil and saline was measured under applied electric fields to understand the electrocapillary phenomena at the edible oil/saline interfaces. The electric responses of saline droplets in edible oil were also observed microscopically to examine the relationship between the electrocapillary phenomena and interfacial polarization. When sodium oleate (SO) was added to edible oil (SO-oil), the interfacial tension between SO-oil and saline decreased. However, no decrease was observed for additive-free oil or oleic acid (OA)-added oil (OA-oil)...

In this paper, we describe a particle preparation method that combines phase inversion of water in oil (W/O) emulsions with solidification of polymers dissolved in the emulsion droplets, induced by introducing a poor solvent, in order to prepare poly(styrene-co-acrylonitrile) (SAN) particles with a relatively narrow size distribution. W/O emulsions containing SAN are prepared by adding an aqueous solution of polyvinylalcohol (PVA) as a protective colloid into a methylethylketone (MEK) solution of SAN. Sufficient addition of the aqueous solution causes the precipitation of SAN particles from MEK followed by phase inversion from W/O emulsions to oil in water (O/W) emulsions...

Squalene (SQ), a main component of human sebum, is readily photooxidized by exposure to sunlight, producing six squalene monohydroperoxide (SQ-OOH) isomers. Despite its known connection to various skin conditions, few studies have sought to analyze SQ-OOH at the isomeric level. In this study, we aimed to develop a method to discriminate each SQ-OOH isomer with the use of tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS). The six standard SQ-OOH isomers were prepared by photooxidizing SQ in the presence of rose bengal, a photosensitizer, and isolated by semipreparative high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC)...

We discuss an alternate spray-coating technique for the direct fabrication of hydroxyapatite films using metal masks, suction-type spray nozzles and two calcification solutions of calcium hydroxide and phosphoric acid aqueous solutions. Hydroxyapatite films were formed only on the hydrophobic surface of the substrates. Scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy showed that the spray-coated films consisted of hydroxyapatite nanoparticles. The Ca/P ratio was estimated to be about 1...

This study investigated the location and distribution of paramagnetic species in apple seeds using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) and X-band (9 GHz) EPR imaging (EPRI). EPR primarily detected two paramagnetic species per measured seed. These two different radical species were assigned as stable radicals and Mn(2+) species based on the g values and hyperfine components. The signal from the stable radical was noted at g ≈ 2.00 and was strong and relatively stable. The subsequent noninvasive EPRI of the radical present in each seed revealed that the stable radicals were located primarily in the seed coat, with very few radicals observed in the cotyledon of the seed...
