A flow-through reactor for hemicelluloses extraction with hot pressurized water was scaled with a factor of 73. System performance was evaluated by comparing the temperature profile, extraction yield and kinetics of the two systems, performing experiments at 160 and 170 ºC, 11 bar for 90 min, using catalpa wood as raw material. Hemicellulose yields were […]
Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the catechin with the highest antioxidant activity present in green tea. Nevertheless, due its low bioavailability, it is necessary to develop EGCG formulations capable of improving its stability resulting in increased bioavailability and thus higher biological activity of this catechin (e.g. antioxidant activity). The purpose of this work was the formulation […]
