A direct aspiration, flame atomic absorption method has been developed for the determination of dimethylpolysiloxanes (DMPS) in fats and oils. The detection limit of the method is approximately 1 ppm with a standard deviation for samples containing 1–10 ppm DMPS of 0.3. The technique is reasonably rapid, requires a minimum of sample preparation, and is applicable to the analysis of both hydrogenated and nonhydrogenated products.
