Advances in Lipid Methodology
- R O Adlof, National Center for Agriculture Utilization Research, US Department of Agriculture, USA
As in the previous volumes of Advances in lipid methodology, the editor has chosen leading international experts to write individual chapters. Volume 5 contains four chapters on specific methodologies of lipid analysis and three which describe specific applications or standardization of methods.
The methodologies are different scanning calorimetry for the study of physical properties of fats and oils; silver ion chromatography; atmospheric-pressure chemical-ionization mass spectrometry (APCI-MS); and supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC).
Chapters on specific applications cover the analysis of genetically modified oils and the use of fatty acid profiling in the characterization of metabolic diseases. A further chapter provides an overview of the official standard methods used for fats and oils analysis and gives extensive listings of information on standards organizations.
