        This course will cover an in-depth study of chemical and
physical properties of edible fats and oils and the roles of their
functional properties in food systems. Major topics covered will
be chemistry of triglycerides, auto and thermal oxidation,
antioxidants, chemical reactions in deep-fat frying, principles
and application of polymorphism, interesterification and
hydrogenation, fractionation of fats and oils, current
instrumental analyses of lipids and biotechnology of fats and

 • To describe the relationship between the composition of
 tryglycerides and their chemical and physical properties.

 • To describe the chemical reactions of auto and thermal
 oxidation of oil and the mechanisms of antioxidants.

 • To describe the chemical mechanisms of hydrogenation and
 interesterification and their applications in fats and oils.

• To apply the physical and chemical methods to convert readily-
available fats into tailor-made fats, that may be in greater demand or
more desirable economically or nutritionally than the original fats.

• To describe the current instrumental and analytical methods as
research tools in the fats and oils area.

• To describe the application of biotechnology to the modification
and production of fats and oils.

Fatty Acid Analysis

 1. Method for oils :

    a. measure 5 - 15 mg oil into small vial.
    b. add 0.4 - 0.8 ml sodium methoxide.
    c. heat 60C for 50 - 60 min.
    d. add 0.4 - 0.8 ml saturated NaCl solution.
    e. extract with 0.4 ml petroleum ether.
    f. check derivertization (TLC-chloroform solvent).
    g. Gas Chromatography analysis
Fatty Acid Analysis

  2. For quantification : the same as above except
     a. add internal standard free fatty acid to oil.
     b. add equal volumes of sodium methoxide and
          BF3-methanol, 0.5 - 1.0 ml of each.
     c. heat 70 - 80C for 50 - 60 min. (if, after 20 min.
         of heating the sample is not dissolved, add more
          sodium methoxide and BF3-methanol).
Disadvantages of Gas Chromatography

  Material has to be volatilized at 250°C without decomposition.
