Traditional methods of lipid analysis do not adequately meet these challenges. However, dinitrophenylhydrazones of aldehydes were detected by the coulometric cell; the response appears to be sensitive micromolar so may offer a superior alternative to optical detection of these products.
Current label requirements with detailed accountability for food composition create increase demands for analysis of total lipid composition that are accurate, sensitive, and fast.
This dissertation research seeks to develop improved reversed phase high pressure liquid chromatography methods that simultaneously separate the lipid fractions most important in foods free fatty acids, acylglycerols, and phospholipids and quantitates each fraction while also analyzing lipid oxidation products.
This allows quantitation but necessitates separate calibration curves for each component. Preliminary tests demonstrated superior detection of hydroperoxides with linear concentration response using an amperometric cell with glassy carbon electrode.
In addition, presence of unsaturated lipids dramatically increases oxidation, which is perceived as "rancid" off-odors and flavors by consumers, and food companies must be able to track this degradation to adequately stabilize foods and know when to pull products from shelves. Evaporative light scattering successfully detected low concentrations of all lipid fractions, including saturated components, but slopes of concentration curves varied with each lipid component.
A coulometric electrochemical cell with graphite electrode detected hydroperoxides but not aldehydes or epoxides.
Further studies with electrochemical detection of lipid oxidation products should focus on this method. Under these conditions, fractions separated according to equivalent carbon number.
DescriptionReformulation of foods to include nutritionally adequate levels of polyunsaturated fatty acids is seriously challenging existing lipid analysis methods. A cyano column to establish column triple bond interactions with lipid double bonds in tandem with the reversed phase column did not increase separation of components within classes.

Reversed-Phase HPLC Determination of Cholesterol in Food Items.
David Christian Essaka Reversed-Phase HPLC Determination of Cholesterol in Food Items. _____ A thesis presented to Cholesterol is a fat-like molecule found among lipids in animal (including human) tissues.
It is. Refinement of a HPLC assay of lipid hydroperoxides caused by free radical-mediated oxidation of membrane lipids: an honors thesis (HONRS ). A universal lipids HPLC method is outlined that offers high selectivity across a wide array of lipid classes (steroids to paraffins) in one 72 min HPLC analysis.
This method can be used to determine which lipids are present in a sample, and then the gradient conditions can be optimized. Sensitive analysis of polar lipids using HPLC with low temperature evaporative light scattering detection Application Note Food testing and agriculture.
