Thus, in this work, a cellulose acetate biopolymer was used for the development of microcapsules containing Cyanex 923, a solvating reagent which has proven to be a good phenol extractant in studies on liquid-liquid extraction [21], supported liquid membranes [22, 23], and solvent impregnated resins [24], among others.

Variables studied were the treatments: uncoated fruit, fruit coated with 1% sodium alginate and fruit coated with 3% cellulose acetate, under room and chilling temperatures, and the storage time (0, 3, 6, 9 and 12 days).
However, the presumptive diagnosis was in doubt because the retention times of many Hb variants overlap on HPLC, and unexpectedly, the IEF migration pattern was not what would have been predicted for Hb Austin given the historic report of cellulose acetate electrophoresis.
