Autoclaving is a process where overpressurized steam is used to bring
solutions or objects to or even above 120 C. The solutions does not
boil in this enviroment but are degased, get very homogenous and bugs
are killed (all nice things!). This procedure would make it possible to
store ready made solutions of gum and gelatin without the need for
adding toxic preservatives for a very long time. Does anyone use
autoclaving for gum / gelatin? Is there a problem with hydrolysis or
whatever?
