Relation between the phase state and thermal degradation rate of saccharose
- 16 Downloads
The thermal degradation of saccharose was studied in the range 164–200° and it was shown that the reaction rate changes at the melting point of saccharose.
Most of the induction period for the degradation of saccharose is associated with a difference in the degradation rates of the solid and melt, and a decrease in the melting point when the degradation products are formed. The autocatalysis in the developing reaction is explained by the catalytic effect of the volatile reaction products.
