Abstract: The high temperatures required to analyze glycerol and glyceride contaminants in biodiesel can result in short column lifetimes and more downtime for maintenance. Metal MXT-Biodiesel TG columns are more durable and longer lasting than their fused silica column counterparts, making them a better choice for labs wanting to minimize downtime. As demonstrated here, MXT-Biodiesel columns meet method EN 14105 (2011) performance requirements and provide excellent chromatographic results for biodiesel testing.
