Proposal titleMeasuring Sugar & Alcohol Contents by Electronic Means

AbstractMethods for the estimation of sugar and alcohol contents depend on the chemical analysis

of samples. These can be slow, involve noxious chemicals, confined to the laboratory and

unsuitable for on-line process control. A new technology, involving ionic and non- ionic

dynamics and cell wall physics when defined as constituents of an electrical circuit, creates

an opportunity to provide a new electronic method for analysis for chemical composition

of tissues,liquids and solutions. Each sample type requires probes, electrical excitation and

complex algorithrns (to convert electrical data to composition) which are application

specific. Thus this project intends to focus on two priority applications (i) sugar in sugar

beet and (ii) alcohol in beer . It is intented to research circuitry for each application and to

build and test prototype equipment in the laboratory and in-situ.
