Enhanced functional properties of biopolymer film incorporated with curcurmin-loaded mesoporous silica nanoparticles for food packaging

Wu, Chunhua; Zhu, Yang; Wu, Tiantian; Wang, Lin; Yuan, Yi; Chen, Jicheng; Hu, Yaqin; Pang, Jie

Curcumin loaded mesoporous silica nanoparticle (SBA-15) was incorporated into chitosan (CS) film to improve the functional properties of pure CS film. Curcumin was loaded into SBA-15 (SBA-15-Cur) through a rotavapor method. The structural properties of SBA-15-Cur were characterised in detail by small-angle X-ray scattering, fourier transform-infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy, transmission electron…

Characterization of multi-scale structure and thermal properties of Indica rice starch with different amylose contents

Li, Zhihang; Kong, Xiangli; Zhou, Xianrong; Zhong, Kui; Zhou, Sumei; Liu, Xingxun

Fully understanding the relationship between multi-scale structure and thermal properties of rice starch is important for starch-based food processing. Multi-scale structures of Indica rice starch were studied from molecules to aggregation structure. Gel-permeation chromatography (GPC) and high-performance anion-exchange chromatography (HPAEC) both show that the amylopectin from debranched rice…
