Fuel Oil Degradation Mix (4 components)

Subsurface degradation of fuel oil spills can be estimated by examining the ratios of C17/pristane and C18/phytane.1 To assist in identifying these four compounds from the complex fuel oil analysis, we offer a product that contains these compounds for retention time determination.
Certified reference materials (CRMs) manufactured and QC tested in ISO-accredited labs satisfy your ISO requirements.
