Functional foods characterization at the nanoscale using SAXS

- Application highlight - Development of nanocarriers for functional food delivery is an active area of research. Both the development and the production process require characterization techniques that provide information about how nutrient loading and processing conditions influence the final structure and stability of nanocarriers and their dispersion in food.…

Probing the effect of oxidation on model lipid bilayers. The vital function of cells depends strongly on cell membranes which enclose cellular compartments and separate the cell interior from the extracellular domain. Oxidative stress for example damages the cell membrane and is at the origin of many pathological conditions such…

Screening of stimuli-responsive colloidal particles. Microgels are colloidal particles consisting of cross-linked 3-dimensional polymer networks. These particles have the ability to shrink or swell substantially in response to external stimuli such as temperature, pH, ionic strength and light, allowing triggered release of encapsulated bioactive molecules. They additionally protect these loaded…
