1H-NMR as a tool for the determination of mixtures of virgin olive oil with oils of different botanical origin

Funded under: FP5

Abstract

1H-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) provides a possible alternative to conventional chromatographic methods for determining the composition of oils. In this study various oils from olive, hazelnut and sunflower were analysed by 1H-NHR spectrometry. Experimental conditions were chosen in order to have a short experimental time. It was demonstrated that multivariate statistical methods, in particular discriminant analysis, applied to selected predominant peaks of 1H-NMR spectrum of oil resulted in a good separation between these three oils of different botanical origin and enabled the detection of their mixtures.
