Analysis of volatile fatty acids in biological specimens by capillary column gas chromatography


A method was developed to analyze and quantify volatile fatty acids (VFA) such as acetic, propionic, butyric, isobutyric, valeric and isovaleric acids in biological specimens. To obtain good sample transfer into the chromatographic system an organic solvent had to be used together with an aqueous milieu, thus improving wetting properties of the liquid… (More)
