Figure 5
Representative SAXS data measured for the native tapioca during heating: (a) below and (b) above 323 K. The dotted line in (a) marks the common q−4 scattering behavior. Vertical arrows in (b) emphasize the intensity changes in the low- and high-q regions during heating. The arrow outlines the power-law scattering behaviour I(q) ∝ q−2.8 at 330 K; whereas the solid curve calculated using a fractal model describes the fractal scattering behavior I(q) ∝ q−2.0 of the melted structure at 347 K. In (b), the long- and short-dashed curves are scattering contributions from the fractal aggregation of nanoclusters and the free nanoclusters, respectively.
