Glass Transition Temperature of Rice Kernels Determined by Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis

  title={Glass Transition Temperature of Rice Kernels Determined by Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis},
  author={Terry J. Siebenmorgen and Wade Yang and Zhenhua Sun},
A protocol was developed to measure the glass transition temperature (Tg) of brown rice kernels using dynamic mechanical thermal analysis (DMTA). In order to accommodate the sample requirements of the dynamic mechanical thermal analyzer and prevent moisture loss during experiments, kernels were first wrapped with a thin layer of parafilm and then a thin layer of aluminum foil. The wrapped kernels were then filed at both ends with fine sandpaper to produce 3 mm long rice cylinders with parallel… CONTINUE READING
