The applicability of the William, Landel, and Ferry (WLF) equation with a modification to take into account the effect of melt-dilution and an empirical log-logistic equation were evaluated to model the kinetics of diffusion-controlled reactions in frozen systems. Kinetic data for the pectin methylesterase catalyzed hydrolysis of pectin in four model systems with different glass transition temperatures: sucrose, maltodextrin (DE = 16.5-19.5), carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) and fructose in a… CONTINUE READING
