Application of specific response factors in the gas chromatographic analysis of methyl esters of fatty acids with flame ionization detectors

The relative responses for flame ionization detectors in the analysis of the longer chain fatty acid methyl esters are shown to correlate with the theoretical responses based on weight percent content of “active” carbon. While particularly affecting estimation of the shorter chain length saturated fatty acids, these corrections have a less marked effect on the estimation of unsaturated fatty acids.
