GC Analysis of Glycerides in Coconut Cooking Oil on SLB®-35ms

GC Analysis of Glycerides in Coconut Cooking Oil on SLB®-35ms

Conditions

column SLB-35ms, 10 m x 0.25 mm I.D., 0.10 µm; made by cutting down a 30 m x 0.25 mm I.D., 0.10 µm column (29802-U)
oven 75 C (0.1 min), 15 C/min to 380 C (10 min)
carrier gas helium, 1.5 ml/min
sample coconut cooking oil, 0.02% (v/v) in chloroform
injection 1muL, on-column
inj. temp. track oven: 75 C (0.1 min), 15 C/min to 380 C (10 min)
detector FID, 380 C

Description

Analysis Note Triglycerides are the main constituent of vegetable oil and animal fat, and make up most of the fats digested by humans. Most natural fats contain a complex mixture of individual triglycerides. Therfore, efficient capillary GC columns are required for ample resolution and subsequent identification. Triglycerides are large compounds, and require a relatively high final oven temperature for GC analysis. For the analysis of triglycerides in coconut cooking oil, a short, thin film version of SLB-35ms (cut-down from a longer column) run to a final oven temperature of 380 ºC was found to provide good resolution and reasonable elution times.
