Read more on the analysis of edible oils using FTIR

To learn more about the analysis of edible oils, read the open access journal article by Parker et al. In this paper, the detailed information contained in FTIR spectra is compared with that from another analytical technique, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance spectroscopy, which we will be exploring in the next week of this course.
