Determination of the (13)C content of glycerol samples of different origin
The average carbon isotope value (delta (13)C) of 63 samples of glycerol from over 30 different sources has been determined. The results indicate that it is possible to distinguish between the glycerol obtained from the glycerides produced in plants following C-3 and C-4 carbon fixation pathways. The samples obtained from animal sources seem to reflect the composition of the fed material, as well as that produced by sugar fermentation.
