Oxidation of ascorbic acid in the presence of nitrites

, : Oxidation of ascorbic acid in the presence of nitrites. Journal of Agricultural & Food Chemistry 44(10): 2948-2950

We have shown that ascorbic acid in neutral aqueous media rather rapidly interacts with nitrite ions to form dehydroascorbic acid. If the acidity of solution is sufficiently high (pH value does not exceed much above apprx 7) and the nitrite concentration is of order of 0.05 M or more, the only mechanism of the reaction under aerobic conditions includes, as the first, rate-limiting reaction step, the nitrosation of ascorbic acid. A second-order reaction kinetics was observed in respect to protons, which determined a sharp acceleration of the ascorbic acid conversion when the acidity of the medium was raised. Hence, a suggestion can be drawn that the presence of nitrites in vegetables under acidic storage strongly increases the decay of vitamin C.

In the past few years an increasing number of small non-coding RNAs (sRNAs) in enterobacteria have been found to negatively regulate the expression of outer membrane proteins (OMPs) at the post-transcriptional level. These RNAs act under various g...
