Vegetable oils - Determination of mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons (MOSH) and aromatic hydrocarbons (MOAH) with online coupled HPLC-GC-FID analysis - Method for low limit of quantification (ISO/DIS 20122:2023); German and English version prEN ISO 20122:2023

Abstract

This International standard method specifies a procedure for the determination of saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons (from C10 to C50) in vegetable fats and oils using the online-coupled HPLCGC-FID. This standard is not intended to be applied to other matrices. The method can be used for the analysis of mineral oil saturated hydrocarbons (MOSH) and/or mineral oil aromatic hydrocarbons (MOAH). According to the results of the interlaboratory studies, the method has been proven suitable for MOSH mass concentrations above 3 mg/kg and MOAH mass concentrations above 2 mg/kg. In case of suspected interferences, the fossil origin of the MOSH and MOAH fraction can be verified by examination by GCGC-MS. An alternative method for the epoxidation of the MOAH fraction (performic acid epoxidation) is proposed in Annex C. This alternative method provides comparable results to the ethanolic epoxidation of the MOAH fraction described in 8.5. This alternative method for epoxidation has proven to be efficient for samples with a high amount of interferences in the MOAH fraction (e.g. tropical oils).
