The retention indices of 27 mono-, di-, and trisubstituted esters of glycerol and C1–C6 carboxylic acids were determined on an OV-101 nonpolar phase in the temperature range 110–250°C. The dependence of the retention indices on temperature and the number of carbon atoms in the acid residue was linear for all compounds. The data obtained can be used for identifying glycerol esters in various mixtures and for predicting their thermodynamic properties.
