General description

Application: This highly polar biscyanopropyl column was specifically designed for detailed separation of geometricpositional (cis/trans) isomers of fatty acid methyl esters (FAMEs). It is extremely effective for FAME isomer applications.
USP Code: This column meets USP G5 requirements.
  • Non-bonded
  • Poly(biscyanopropyl siloxane)
Temp. Limits:
  • Subambient to 250 °C (isothermal or programmed)


SP®-2560 capillary GC column may be used for analysing fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) using capillary gas liquid chromatography (GLC).

Rumen metabolism (e.g., biohydrogenation) of dietary unsaturated fatty acids (FA) is one of the main reasons why ruminant fats tend to be highly saturated and contain many isomerized FA intermediates. The process by which long-chain (20- to 24-carbon FA) polyunsaturated...
AOCS and AOAC methods for determining the trans fatty acid composition of foods by gas chromatography require the use of a highly polar cyanosilicone capillary column to provide the best peak resolution attainable of the numerous geometric (cis & trans) and positional isomers.
