Based on the sorption isotherms of crambe fruits, the value of the L/L' ratio of Equation 3 was assessed at different equilibrium moisture contents, Xe (decimal), which adjusted the equation to the enthalpy of vaporization of water, as reported by Rodrigues--Arias (Brooker, Bakker-Arkema, & Hall, 1992).
In combination with the vaporization enthalpy a related enthalpy of vaporization at [lambda]= 1 was introduced.
7), a linear pattern is obtained with good regression coefficients; this is logical, because the Hildebrand solubility parameter is intimately related to the enthalpy of vaporization, which is magnitude that depends inversely on temperature.
