Application Note: Applications of Automated Thermometric Titrimetry in Routine Process and Quality Control of Fats and Oils
1 February 2010

Two determinations common in the analysis of fats and oils illustrate the versatility of the technique, namely the free fatty acid (FFA) content and the iodine value (IV). In both analyses, excellent agreement has been demonstrated with results obtained by official methods of analysis. The titrations are very fast, typically less than a minute in duration, and can be conducted using an automatic sample changer.
