Title:
Hydration behavior of casein micelles in thin film geometry: A GISANS study † 
Abstract:
The water content of casein micelle films in water vapor atmosphere is investigated using time-resolved grazing incidence small-angle neutron scattering (GISANS). Initial dry casein films are prepared with a spin-coating method. At 30 °C, the formation of a water-equilibrated casein protein film is reached after 11 min with a total content of 0.36 g of water/g of protein. With increasing water vapor temperature up to 70 °C, an increase in the water content is found. With GISANS, lateral structur...    »
