Recently, the use and capabilities of NMR, UV-VIS and FTIR microspectroscopy in biology has increased. We apply UV-VIS spectroscopy to localize isoflavones, ß-glucans, proteins in cereal grains Using synchrotron FTIR microspectroscopy, we have mapped in situ some of the major chemical components (proteins, lipids and carbohydrates) in different tissues of cereal grains and mature soybean seeds The protein secondarystructure was also determined. NMR microimaging was applied to study water movement.
