4). An excellent review of ESEM for studying a wide variety of food systems is given by James (2009), which outlines the different approaches covered here along with numerous examples. Another review is that of Donald (2004), which discusses ESEM studies of foods in a materials science context. 1 Imaging uncoated materials ESEM can be utilised in so-called ‘low vacuum’ mode, where the gas participates as a means of charge-reduction at a suitably low pressure, just sufficient to mitigate negative charge build-up.
