Spectral-luminescent analysis of sugar cane juice

  • 38 Accesses


A spectral-luminescent analysis has been made of the low-, medium-, and high-molecular mass fractions of sugar cane juice. The presence of pigments was detected in all the fractions. The medium-molecular-mass fraction was distinguished by the most considerable and most diverse composition of the pigments, a substantial contribution to which was made by the products of the alkaline decomposition of sugars. The amounts of pigments in all the fractions of the juice depended on the age of the plant. A pronounced dependence on the age of the plant was characteristic for the medium-molecular-mass fraction.
