The analysis of 3-MCPD and glycidyl esters using AOCS Cd 29c-13 is time consuming and exposes the GC-MS to harsh derivatization reagents that can limit column lifetime and increase maintenance costs. Here, we optimized the method using split injection, resulting in a time savings of 8 minutes, less damage from derivatization reagents, and the flexibility to use either PTV or split/splitless inlets.
