Characterization of intracellular glasses in bean axes with relevance to storage stability



Characterization of intracellular glasses in bean axes with relevance to storage stability



Basic and applied aspects of seed biology Proceedings of the Fifth International Workshop on Seeds, held at Reading, UK on 10-15 September 1995: 737-746



Using differential scanning calorimetry, the thermal behaviour of glass transitions in axes of bean at temperatures between -120 degrees C and +120 degrees C was studied. Three types of thermal behaviours associated with the glass transition were observed in tissues with water contents between 0.03 and 0.45 g H2O/g DW. The appearance, the temperature and the amount of energy released during these transitions were dependent on the tissue water content.
