Standard Methods for the analysis of Oils, Fats and Derivatives Sixth Edition, Part 1 (Sections I and II) describes the methods of analysis, which have been adopted and edited by the Commission on Oils, Fats and Derivatives. This book is composed of two sections. The first section deals with the presentation of standard methods and procedure for oleaginous seeds and fruits analysis of oil, fats, and their derivatives. The next section describes the determination procedure of physico-chemical properties of determined oil, fats, and derivatives. Such characteristics include density, refractive index, color, dilatation, acid, ester, iodine value, and moisture and volatile matter content This book will prove useful to analytical chemists and researchers in the allied fields.
