Advances in GC–MS for Food Analysis
An overview of important gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) techniques currently used in food analysis is described. Considerable attention is devoted to the use of the mass spectrometer, in relation to its potential for separation and identification. The importance of comprehensive two-dimensional GC (GC×GC) is also discussed.

Detection and Identification of Natural Antioxidants in Edible Oils Using LC Fractionation with Off-Line Effect-Based Detection
Many edible oils contain natural antioxidants that protect the oil from lipid oxidation, Knowledge on the identity of these oxidation inhibitors is crucial to find natural ways to protect healthy, unsaturated fats and oils from turning rancid. This article describes a new assay that allows rapid quantification of the lipid oxidation inhibting potenital of pure compounds or liquid chromatography (LC) fractions.

Editors' Series: Industrial Problem Solving Using Ion Chromatography
On Demand
This web seminar will highlight the importance of IC for industrial problem solving and provide insights into some practical approaches used. Newer applications for IC in the area of total heteroatom determination using combustion-IC will also be introduced.
Editors' Series: HILIC: A Critical Evaluation
On Demand
In this web seminar, the possibilities and limitations of HILIC using columns packed with sub-2-µm fully porous particles and sub-3-µm core-shell particles will be discussed. The emphasis will be on kinetic performance, generic method development, the applicability of HILIC to a wide range of compounds (including polar compounds, ionizable compounds, and peptides) and a comparison of performance with reversed-phase LC. In addition, the critical impact of dissolution solvent in HILIC will be discussed and some problems related to pH control in highly organic mobile phase or long equilibrating time will be discussed.
