The topic of his Ph.D theses is 'Performance evaluation of membrane contractors for concentration of fruit juices through osmotic
In the present paper we offer a more elegant model for the water retention curve, [theta](h), and outline two alternative ways to attenuate the differential water capacity for osmotic
stress, along with a dimensionless sensitivity factor, to account for the differing tolerance of plants to saline conditions.
Hypernatremia is a potentially lethal condition, and can cause encephalopathy, rhabdomyolysis, and osmotic
dehydration as pre-treatment to drying has favored retention of color, flavor and aroma, in addition to reducing the processing time.
The treatments consisted of osmotic
dehydration with sucrose solution at concentrations of 60% and 80% for two hours, followed by addition of one of the preserving ingredients: citric acid, ascorbic acid or pectin.
However, the main concern in using these waters even in hydroponic cultivation is the concentration of salts (Niu & Cabrera, 2010), because they can hinder plant development for reducing the osmotic
potential of the solution, compromising water absorption and, consequently, modifying water consumption of crops (Paulus et al., 2012).
laxatives soften your stools by increasing the amount of water in your bowels.
Effect of Hemodialysis on Plasma Osmotic
Pressure and Blood Biochemical Parameters (Table 2).
applied the combination of high confining pressure and low osmotic
pressure on the specimens and studied the physical and mechanical properties of the fractured limestone during the hydraulic coupling process .
Until now, no published studies have considered the influence of osmotic
pressure on the migration properties of nanoparticles in a porous medium.
To improve the quality of vacuum-fried products, several pretreatments methods, such as blanching, predrying, osmotic
pretreatment, coating, and freezing methods, have been applied to the frying of foods [8-12].
Therefore, the development of alternative, simple, and inexpensive methods to extend the conservation and marketing of these fruits is important, and osmotic
dehydration is one of these methods.
