Principles of a microcalorimetric technique for the study of mould activity as a function of relative humidity

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Growth of mould fungi is one of the main causes of deterioration of foodstuffs, building materials and textiles. A new microcalorimetric technique has been developed for the study of mould activity as a function of water activity, temperature and atmospheric composition. This paper describes the method, in particular how to measure mould activity as a function of relative humidity.
