Marcel Dekker  2001  

Hardcover  552 pages, Illustrated  ISBN 9780824705510      £158.00
This book covers new and emerging techniques, processes, and applications in the behaviour, crystallization, and polymorphic transformations of fats and oils. It presents recent research and current information on advanced analytical tools, computer modelling, molecular structures, mixing behaviour, and interactions with seeding materials and surfactants. It also highlights novel developments in the food, cosmetic, and pharmaceutical industries covering recent discoveries in polymorphic forms, self-assembled structures, and speciality fats and oils, emphasising health, balanced nutrition, and functionality. It will be of interest to oil, lipid, food, cosmetic, physical, surface, and colloid chemists and biochemists as well as graduate students.
