An FT-IR Spectroscopic Study of Cooking an Egg Yolk on a Single-Reflection Diamond ATR

February 01, 2016

Application Notebook

Article

Single reflection ATR spectroscopy is valuable for examining thermally induced changes in materials. Changes in the water concentration and amide bands of egg yolk were observed using the Harrick DiaMaxATR accessory. Further analysis is possible to obtain more rigorous identification of the heat-induced structural changes.
