The relief can be achieved by the insertion of unmodified TRPA1 proteins into the plasma membrane through rapid vesicle fusion, or by dehydroxylation through an unidentified enzymatic process.
The second mass loss in the temperature range of 300[degrees]C-500 [degrees]C corresponds to dehydroxylation of structural aluminol groups (Al-OH) [36].
The dehydroxylation of kaolin to metakaolin is an endothermic process due to a large amount of energy required to remove the chemically bonded hydroxyl ions.
The DSC curves show endothermic and exothermic reactions during calcination, such as desorption of surface water (H2O), dehydroxy lation (structural OH-groups) and the transformation to mullite and cristobalite, with resultant temperature effects of dehydroxylation and polymorphic transformation strongly dependent on kaolinite structural order (Ece et al.
34) The third region of above 500[degrees]C is attributed to the dehydroxylation (release of OH from the structure).
2011); Implications of the thermal properties and kinetic parameters of dehydroxylation of mica minerals for fault weakening, frictional heating, and earthquake energetic.
Mostly, ring fission of, for example, flavonoids [135], demethylation, dehydroxylation, decarboxylation, and deglycosylation and reduction reactions have been reported and have been reviewed previously [136,137].
Perhaps, this is the conversion period of diaspore to corundum in which dehydroxylation takes place [8].
The weight lost upto 160 oC can be attributed to the removal of surface adsorbed water while the weight lost between 150 oC to 500 oC is attributed to the interlayer water and due to the dehydroxylation of cerium species.
The second endothermic peak which corresponds to dehydroxylation of kaolinite is associated with a well-dened endothermic peak in DTA curve at 500 - 550C (McConville and Lee, 2005; McConville et al.
