A Graduate Student Exit Seminar will be held Wednesday, April 3rd from 3:00 - 4:00 pm. 

In-person in room 1207 Robert Mondavi Institute South, or you can attend remotely by Zoom. 

Ann-Dorie Webley, a Ph.D candidate in Ebeler and Dungan labs, will present her Exit Seminar, "Partitioning of Limonene into Phospholipid Vesicle Dispersions."

Abstract and bio below. 

April 3, 2024, 3-4 PM

ABSTRACT: Solubilizing aromas using nanostructures can protect them from evaporation, deterioration, and chemical reactions, and ultimately improve food quality. To understand the effects of structure and temperature on local partitioning properties, quantification methods that are fast, accurate and nondestructive were developed using head space solid phase microextraction (HS-SPME) and gas chromatography mass spectrometry (GC/MS). The distribution of the aroma limonene in phospholipid vesicles was evaluated using mixing thermodynamics.

BIO: Ann-Dorie is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Food Science and Technology at the University of California, Davis. She previously received her bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Wesleyan University and joined the Food Science Graduate Group in 2018. She is currently a member of the Ebeler and Dungan labs, where she studies the partitioning properties of aromas using analytical chemistry.
