This European Standard specifies a method to determine the free glycerol and residual mono-, di- and triglyceride contents in fatty acid methyl esters (FAME) intended for addition to mineral oils. The total glycerol content is then calculated from the results obtained. This method is suitable for FAME from rapeseed, sunflower, soybean oils but is not suitable for FAME produced from or containing coconut and palm kernel oils because of overlapping of peaks.
WARNING - The use of this method may involve hazardous equipment, materials and operations. This method does not purport to address to all of the safety problems associated with its use, but it is the responsibility of the user to search and establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
