Gas chromatographic evaluation of wool wax alcohols supported by principal component analysis

  • H. Lamparczyk
  • M. Miszkiel


Capillary gas chromatography with flame ionization detection has been applied to the separation of the components of wool wax alcohols. Twenty-six commercial and non-commercial (laboratory) samples were investigated. Twenty-eight components found in the samples were used as variables for further characterization by a chemometric procedure. Principal component analysis was applied to the differentiation of samples from different sources and obtained by different technologies.
