TS No. 105: Determination of 3-MCPD Esters in an Oil Matrix

This test method describes a procedure using a gas chramotographic mass selective detector (GC-MSD) for the determination of 3-monochlioropropane-1,2-diol (3-M CPD) esters in an oil matrix. The 3-monochlioropropane-1,2-diol (3-M CPD) is one of the food-processing contaiminants under the chloropropanols group. Zelinkova et al. (2006) showed that the formation of 3-MCPD esters in oils is linked to […]

TS No. 104: Determination of Water Solubility and Partition Coefficient for Fatty Acids

Water solubility, also known as aqueous solubility, is the maximum amount of a substance that can dissolve in water at equilibrium, at a given temperature and pressure. This parameter is used in many environmental studies to help determine the fate of chemicals in the environment. Water solubility has been correlated to the partition coefficient, another […]
