Phase behavior of triolein and tripalmitin detected by differential scanning calorimetry

The thermotropic behavior of triolein, tripalmitin and their mixtues was determined by differential scanning calorimetry. Polymorphic behavior was noted for the triglycerides but the triglycerides were converted to a single form after 4 to 5 successive heating scans. Melting points for each triglyceride were determined for the pure samples and mixtures, and… CONTINUE READING
