Application Note: Detection and Quantification of Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAMES) in Jet Fuel by GCxGC-TOFMS
7 February 2013

FAME contamination of jet fuel in high enough concentrations can impact and compromise jet fuel properties which may lead to engine operational problems and possible engine flameout. This application note presents a reliable and effective method, using 2D gas chromatography (GCxGC) coupled to a time-of-flight mass spectrometer, for the identification and quantification of FAMES in jet fuel.
