The structural organization of alkaline soluble peach pectin was investigated over size ranges extending from micrometers to tenths of nanometers. Analysis was by electron microscopy and high-performance anion-exchange chromatography (HPAEC). Superimposed and individual circular microgels in the micrometer size range were isolated from mesocarp tissue of cell walls and visualized by rotary shadowing. Dilute NaCl and 50% aqueous glycerol disaggregated these microgels into rods, segmented rods… CONTINUE READING
