The properties and applications of supercritical carbon dioxide

The Properties and Applications of Supercritical Carbon dioxide Abstract In chemical sciences, a supercritical fluid is defined as any substance for which the pressure and temperature conditions that are required to maintain its original molecular integrity are beyond critical levels. Supercritical fluids are popular both as solvents and as anti-solvent in processing polymers. Supercritical fluids play an important role in polymer modification, blending of polymers, particle production, in the formation of polymer composites. Moreover, different studies suggest that the qualities of polymers that are processed with SCF are significantly higher than the quality of their counterparts that are...

Development of Low fat fried fish by using a protein based edible coatin

CHAPTER 2 Literature Review2.1. Fried Food Consumption and Average Intake of Dietary Fat In the past three decades, obesity or being overweight has been cited as a growing public health concern, primarily due to its prevalence among younger people. Among the various factors that contribute to the health problem attributing to obesity, a persistent dietary pattern that influences the increasing epidemic and shifts away from healthier options is the consumption of fried foods. When people fry their food in oil, the food absorbs the oil while losing water as lipids are exchanged with the frying oil. The amount of oil being absorbed would depend on the type of food and the conditions for frying....
