Application Note: Simultaneous analysis of vicinal diketones, volatile compounds and ethanol content in beer with a single headspace injection
12 January 2021

In this application note, Shimadzu describes how the analysis of beer volatiles, diacetyl and ethanol content was carried out using the Shimadzu Beer 3-in-1 Analyzer. Shimadzu demonstrates that by using the HS-10 static headspace autosampler and GC-2014 gas chromatograph with a 2-way column adaptor, beer samples can be easily divided between two analytical lines, allowing simultaneous determination of the concentration of three types of compounds with a single injection.
