    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Oxidation of polyunsaturated lipids is a major cause of degradation of the sensory and nutritional quality of food products. The oxidation reactions lead to formation of volatile compounds generally associated with unpleasant flavors, which damages the sensory quality of foods. Lipid oxidation is also responsible for a loss of macro- and micronutrients, and leads to the formation of potentially toxic compounds.The interest in using antioxidants from natural sources is increasing, and ionic liquids (ILs) have attracted considerable attention as solvents in extraction and separation of antioxidants from natural materials. Additionally, ILs are also applied as reaction media for the lipophilization of natural antioxidant. Lipophilization of antioxidants improve the oil solubility and tailor the antioxidants to specific applications, according to the polar paradox and cutoff theories
