Description / Abstract:

This International Standard specifies a rapid method for extraction of oil and for preparation of the methyl esters of fatty acids. The methyl esters thus obtained can be used for gas chromatography.

This International Standard is applicable to the following oilseeds: rape, sunflower, soya beans, mustard, linseed.

NOTE Applying this rapid method to high erucic acid content rapeseed leads to an overestimation of erucic acid content by approximately a mass fraction of 1 %. This difference was observed in the study [6] and may be due to the partial extraction of the oil from the sample (yield around 70%). High content of erucic acid in triglycerides could increase their solubility in hexane because of the lipophilic effect of the carbon longchain (C22). However, as this effect was not checked on a large set of high erucic rapeseed samples, it is not recommended to apply a correction factor to the erucic acid content when analysing high erucic acid rapeseed.
