9 Copyright © 2006 Knovel Corporation Real-Life Application Scenario: A food manufacturing company plans to produce a new spice flavor by using an oleoresin (prepared by solvent extraction of ground spices). The food technologist in charge of the project plans to use acetone as the solvent for extraction, given its wide availability and economical cost. However, it is necessary when using chemicals in commercial food preparation to ensure the correct purity of the substances used. The food technologist would like to know the purity of acetone needed to meet acceptable standards, and what tests can be performed to measure its purity. Knovel can help. Knovel can help.

10 Copyright © 2006 Knovel Corporation Step 1: In the Search box on the Knovel Library home page enter the term acetone. In the lower right drop-down box, change the selection from "All Subject Areas" to "Food Science".Knovel Library home page The query entered means, "find any page of text or row of data from an interactive table where the term acetone is present AND the title must be part of the Food Science Subject Area." Click the button. Real-Life Application

11 Copyright © 2006 Knovel Corporation Step 2: The search results page shows 53 titles that match the search query. The second title listed is Food Chemicals Codex (5th Edition)--this issue's Featured Title.Food Chemicals Codex (5th Edition) Click on the name of that title. Real-Life Application

12 Copyright © 2006 Knovel Corporation Step 3: The Table of Contents appears. Only those sections/chapters containing hits for the search query are displayed by default. Click on the Table (2) link next to the entry called "Interactive Table - Monographs". Real-Life Application

13 Copyright © 2006 Knovel Corporation Step 4: A Knovel Interactive Table opens displaying properties information for acetone and acetone peroxides. Also included in the table are links to the corresponding monographs with full details.Interactive Table Click on the first view monograph link (the first row shown, record #3). Real-Life Application

14 Copyright © 2006 Knovel Corporation Step 5: The Knovel Reader launches showing the full text of the acetone monograph from the FCC, including the Assay value of "Not less than 99.5% and not more than 100.5% of C3H6O, by weight."Knovel Reader Solution: The food technologist now has the needed information to proceed. Real-Life Solution Also shown, when scrolling down the page, are a variety of tests to verify purity.
