RBD palm olein in a lamellar liquid crystalline structure of mixed surfactants I. Optical pattern and DSC investigation

Author(s): HAMDAN, S*; LAILI, C R*

The optical pattern and thermal behaviour of refined, bleached and deodorized (RRD) palm olein in a lamellar liquid crystalline structure of mixed cationic surfactants were investigated using the polarizing microscope and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).

The results indicate some perturbations in the amphiphilic organization and a reduction in transition enthalpy on the addition of RBD palm olein into the lamellar structure.
