Abstract:

The authors on the solubilization patterns of two of these nutraceuticals (lycopene and phtosteols) which are practically insol. in water but which have been solubilized in the QL (glycerol monooleate (GMO) + ethanol + water) mesophases. The scientific value of these results is threefold. The QL phase has the capability and capacity to solubilize guest mols. of different natures. An anal. method was developed to detect at what concn. levels the guest mols. contribute to the inner order and symmetry of the mesophase, and at what concn. levels they destroy the inner symmetry and cause phase transformations. Certain guest mols. can complement each other structurally at the interface and exhibit synergistic solubilization. [on SciFinder(R)]
