Lipid Analysis

sections deal with various aspects of the analysis of lipids from chromatography to nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy and mass spectrometry.

Silver Ion Chromatography of Lipids

These articles deal with both theoretical and practical aspects of this important topic. The main item is an important review of the technique by Boryana Nikolova-Damyanova, but other short topics are being added as time permits. Learn more.

NMR Chemical Shifts for Fatty Acids and their Derivatives

The chemical shifts (1H and 13C) for a wide range of fatty acids and their derivatives are described in these articles by Frank Gunstone and Gerhard Knothe. Learn more.


Modern methods based mainly on mass spectrometry for detailed structural analysis of intact lipids. We have great plans for this section and the first articles are now online. Learn more.
