Inform magazine focuses on POPs, gellants, color measurements, and writing the perfect abstract
Many persistent organic pollutants (POPs) such as dioxins and polyaromatic hydrocarbons are lipophilic and so can be found in vegetable oils, animal fats, and oily foods. Conventional analysis of POPs in oily food samples involves laborious extraction and cleanup techniques. This month’s cover feature from Inform, the AOCS magazine, describes a new quick and easy direct solid-phase extraction method for POPs. Also on tap in the September issue: Bio-based polyamide gellants for novel products forms and functionality, color measurement made easy, and mastering the art of the abstract. Read and share this issue and all back issues, open to all, of the digital edition of Inform.
