AOCS and JOCS sign Memorandum of Understanding at JOCS Headquarters

It's official! AOCS and JOCS signed the Memorandum of Understanding announced in October to mutually adopt selected official analytical methods and a Recommended Practice as joint JOCS/AOCS Methods. Scott Bloomer, Director, AOCS Technical Services, represented AOCS at the signing ceremony. Two joint AOCS-JOCS Methods and a Recommended Practice are now available in the AOCS store:
  • Method Ch 3a-19 allows users to determine the fatty acid occupying the 2-position in triglycerides.
  • Method Cd 29d-19 allows users to detect monochloropropanediol (MCPD) esters and glycidol esters (GEs) in edible oils. 
  • Recommended Practice Cd 29e-19 allows users to quantify MCPD esters and glycidol esters in fish oils. 
 Here are some photos from the ceremony!
