A high-temperature, high-pressure autoclave has been
adapted for use with a high-field nuclear magnetic
resonance spectrometer. The autoclave has an internal
pressure range of atmospheric pressure to 1.5 kbar and a
temperature range of 273 K to 1900 K. The autoclave is
usable in a high field (8 T) magnet...
Radish anthocyanin extract has potential as a natural colorant because of
its pigment stability and attractive red hue. Presence of undesirable aroma
compounds could limit its applications in foods. The pungent principle of
radish, 4-methylthio-3-butenyl isothiocyanate (MTBI), is produced
enzymatically upon cell injury from its glucosinolate precursor, 4-methylthio-3-butenyl glucosinolate (MTBG),...
Fiber flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) production in the Willamette Valley ended in
Oregon around 1957 before newly developed technology and fiber cultivars were
available. The purpose of this research was to explore the use of modern methods and
Field studies were conducted to evaluate cultivars and optimum cultural...
