1. Analysis of Acrylamide and Anthocyanins in Foods : Extraction Optimization for Challenging Analytes
Sammanfattning : In this thesis, the main concern has been to improve the reliability of different parts of the analytical workflow (Paper I, II, IV &V). Additionally, one of the resulting optimized methods was used in a real application (Paper III). Paper I-II concerned the extraction of acrylamide (AA) from foods. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Berries are rich natural sources of anthocyanins, water-soluble pigments in plants that have been linked to beneficial effects against chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases. However, anthocyanins as well as other polyphenolic compounds are often sensitive to degradation during processing, storage and digestion. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Autumn senescence is a visually spectacular phenomenon in which trees prepare for the oncoming winter. The mechanism for regulation of autumn senescence in trees has been very hard to pinpoint. In this thesis the main focus is to investigate how autumn senescence is regulated in aspens (Populus tremula). LÄS MER
4. Optimisation Challenges in Pressurised Hot Water Extraction of Polyphenols: Extraction and Degradation Kinetics
Sammanfattning : Pressurised hot water is an environmentally friendly alternative to hazardous organic solvents such as methanol and heptane. One of the many applications of using pressurised hot water extraction (PHWE) is to extract polyphenols from plants. The challenges in PHWE lies with the optimisation of extraction yield. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Oxidative stress can cause damage to DNA, proteins and lipids and is associated with inflammation and various human diseases as cancer, atherosclerosis, and autoimmune diseases. Polyphenol-rich diet, such as fruits and berries, may act as antioxidants and prevent oxidative stress and, thereby, associated diseases. LÄS MER
