The presenter presents a reliable analytical method using an Agilent 8890 GC System with an Agilent 5977B GC/MSD providing a total solution for determining the fatty acid esters of 2-MCPD and 3-MCPD in infant formula. She explains how two different derivatization reagents, heptafluorobutyrylimidazole (HFBI) and phenylboronic acid (PBA), were evaluated for sample preparation. The results presented demonstrate the benefits of the workflow solution for the analysis of monochloropropanediols in infant formula and how great peak shape and resolution can be obtained.

By viewing this presentation you will learn:

  • A total solution for the simultaneous determination of 2-MCPD and 3-MCPD fatty acid esters in infant formula
  • Two reliable and robust workflows using different derivatization reagents for sample preparation
  • How to achieve excellent instrument performance.
