FA/FAME - CRMs for Chromatography

FA/FAME - CRMs for Chromatography

FA are a class of compounds composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. They are the main components of neutral fats, phospholipids and glycolipids. FA can be divided into saturated FA and unsaturated FA. Saturated FA, such as stearic acid and palmitic acid, do not have carbon - carbon double bonds in molecules. Unsaturated FA have one or more carbon - carbon double bonds in their molecules, and oleic acid is the most common substance. FAME is produced by methylation of FA, which is the main component of biodiesel.

FA and FAME are widely used in food, cosmetics, industrial products and other fields and accurate measurement of FA and FAME is helpful to ensure product quality. In addition, the content and type of FA and FAME are closely related to the life activities of the organisms, and the detection of them is helpful to understand the physiological situation of the organisms. FA/FAME CRM is a branch of certified reference materials, which has high purity and are often used to calibrate instruments, evaluate detection methods, realize qualitative or quantitative tests and others. Commonly used FA/FAME CRMs include stearic acid, palmitic acid, potassium sorbate, palmitic acid, methyl octanoate and others.
