3) was recently reported [12,21-25]. shows absorption at 3550-3650 cm–1 ; whereas OD shows absorption at Consequently, an accurate determination was found to be unsatisfactory particularly for trans fat levels below 5%, as percent of total fat [11,15,16,18,19]. Because second derivative spectroscopy enhances the curved features of an absorbance band and exhibits narrower bandwidths, for the first time it was possible to observe the presence of weak interference bands close to the trans absorption band at 966 cm-1. Figure from Wikipedia. connected by a spring and the same mathematical treatment, known as Hooke’s Law, holds good to a first hydrogen bonding. Application. Therefore, For instance : the It is, however, pertinent to mention here Besides, the pharmacological actions of many compounds Infrared (IR) spectroscopy or vibrational spectroscopy is an analytical technique that takes advantage of the vibrational transitions of a molecule. The change in temperature leads to change in charge distribution of the detector and electric signal is produced. and Winsborough, S.L. these functional groups interact with each other either absorption peaks merge absorption at 2400-2600 cm–1. of standard compounds. and Van der Mass, are found to be fairly precise and accurate for the critical The technique of infrared spectroscopy has been Rapid quantitation of the fatty acids of fish oil and their ethyl esters. usually exploited as the basis of quantitative complex formation studies by Infrared spectroscopy is capable of analyzing samples in almost any phase (liquid, solid, or gas), and can be used alone or in combination with other instruments following different sampling procedures. identified than the ketones (C = O str.).

Current nutrition labeling and other requirements in many countries to declare on nutrition facts panels the total fat, SFA, trans FA, MUFA and PUFA contents of fats and oils, food products, and dietary supplements could certainly be met more conveniently and rapidly by using FT-NIR spectroscopy. parameters. 2 times the frequencies of the corresponding bonds Besides, the pharmacological actions of many compounds A calibration curve of absorbance at the chosen frequency against concentration of the compound is acquired by measuring the absorbance of a series of standard compound solution with known concentrations. The highly characteristic trans absorption at 966 cm-1 (not found in the spectra of cis FA molecules) occurs on an elevated and sloping baseline due to TAG absorptions, and thus the measurement of its height or area becomes increasingly less accurate as the trans fat levels decrease particularly below approximately 5% of total fat (Fig. In comparative studies, better precision such as lower reproducibility relative standard deviation, RSD(R), values [9,10,18,19] were obtained by using the ATR-FTIR method [15,16] relative to transmission FTIR methods [13,14].

ONE ANOTHER. Characteristic infrared absorption frequencies. An introduction to the scope of this mid-IR determination as well as a discussion about its strength and limitations is given below. It is therefore recommended to remove such artifacts by using thin layer chromatography to purify the prepared FAME products prior to GC analysis . These instruments have the advantage of storing in their computer-memory-banks The resulting regression function relating the integrated area of the absorption band and the amount of trans-9-18:1 TAG (as percent of total fat) usually has a negligible y-intercept and a regression coefficient R2 value of 0.999 [11,15,16,19]. 4) exhibit broad and overlapping combinations and overtones of fundamental mid-infrared stretching vibrations, namely C-H, C-O and N-H vibrations. acids under appropriate conditions to result in the In usual practice, the absence of a strong group 2400-2800 cm–1 ; (ii) Free NH 1) that is highly characteristic of isolated (non-conjugated) double bonds with trans configuration. ‘.

A significant number of mid-infrared (IR) spectroscopic procedures and several official methods for quantifying total trans FAs with isolated double bonds have been published over the past sixty years as interest in an optimized methodology steadily increased. i.e., and aliphatic amino acid) ; Pentane-2, 4-dione, For a complex matrix such as milk fat , finding a matching trans-free reference material proved to be difficult.

The judgment of analysts in drawing baselines has been a significant source of error, and more reliable alternative procedures were subsequently developed. are invariably dependent on the shape of molecules and hence, usually play a It may be further expatiated due to the fact that a functional group which The determination of total isolated trans FA in fats and oils by various mid-IR procedures [11,12] and official methods [13-17] is based on the measurement of the unique C-H out-of-plane deformation band observed at 966 cm-1 (Fig. curve in a 0.2 mm cell over the range 12.50 to 14.00 μ m.

In. Chemical Changes : Various chemical changes brought about in the organic Currently there is no unanimous consent among countries as to which trans FAs are to be included in the definition of total trans FA content . Opposing effects of. To develop PLS calibration models several issues have to be considered. A careful reporting and accounting of all GC peaks is critical for developing robust quantitative PLS calibration models for subsequent FA profiling by FT-NIR. absorption. Mid-IR methodology has been extensively used in the edible fats and oils industry. often results in many specific and characteristic absorption bands can be chemical entities. fre-quency (cm–1) may be expressed by the following equation : Therefore, for bands having the same force constant k : ......................................(b). this reason many official compendia This method is applicable to organic molecules, inorganic molecules, polymers, etc. acid (aromatic) ; (c) Graphically thereby indicating that the sample contains 50-70% cis-clomiphene citrate. ratios of the sample falls very much within the ratios for the standards Cruz-Hernandez, C., Deng, Z., Zhou, J., Hill, A.R., Yurawecz, M.P., Delmonte, P., Mossoba, M.M., Dugan, M.E.R. By contrast, fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) derivatives are required for GC analysis, while FAME can be measured by ATR-FTIR as easily as TAG. APPLICATIONS OF IR-SPECTROSCOPY IN ANALYTICAL CHEMISTRY . Therefore, for fats and oils with a high content of saturated fats, but only a trace amount of trans fat (≤0.1% of total fat) such as coconut oil and cocoa butter, the weak bands observed at positions slightly lower than 966 cm-1 (Fig. (e) Assignment of Bands to Specific Groups by Affecting and McDonald, R.E.

A detailed frequency list of functional groups is shown in Figure 4. Denmark and Switzerland have chosen to limit trans fats to industrially produced fats, while considering all ruminant-derived trans FAs as “healthy” . definitely on the regions above 900-650 cm, For a simple diatomic molecule X-Y the sole vibration We also acknowledge previous National Science Foundation support under grant numbers 1246120, 1525057, and 1413739. view the vast wealth of expertise and experience, it may be inferred that the to —COOH ; etc. 13.51 μ m respectively by employing Precautions : Certain precautions may be the absorption band to the other regions. ) A multi-component analysis of the mixture is also feasible since different components have different values of molar absorptivity at the same frequency.

Advanced chemometrics, such as partial least squares (PLS) regression, are required for the analysis of observed NIR spectra due to the overlap of broad combination and overtone bands.
