Determination of the Iodine Value of Selected Oils: An Experiment Combining FTIR Spectroscopy with Iodometric Titrations

  • E. Eugene GoochEmail author
Laboratories and Demonstrations


An experiment has been developed that combines the FTIR analysis of oils and fats with an iodometric titration. While it is most appropriate for a sophomore or junior laboratory for majors, it also makes a suitable group project or demonstration for nonscience majors. Integration of the experiment into an upper-level biochemistry laboratory is described.
