    The study demonstrates the application of front face and right angle synchronous fluorescence spectroscopy for the characterization of edible oils. The method enables monitoring of tocopherols, pheophytins, and other fluorescent components in edible oils. Principal component analysis of synchronous fluorescence spectra revealed sample clustering according to the type of oil. Partial least-squares regression was utilized to develop calibration models between fluorescence spectra and total tocopherol content determined by HPLC. The regression models showed a good ability to predict tocopherol content. The best fitting results were obtained for 1% v/v diluted oils and for bulk samples using the entire spectrum, yielding the regression coefficient, r, of 0.991, and root mean square error of cross-validation of approximately 8%. The results presented confirm the capabilities of the fluorescence techniques as a tool for the analysis of edible oils.

    Comparison of different fluorimetric signals for the simultaneous multivariate determination of tocopherols in vegetable oils.
    Appl Spectrosc 2006 Feb;60(2):194-202

    This paper deals with the simultaneous determination of the quaternary mixture of tocopherols (alpha-, beta-, gamma-, and delta-T) performed using fluorimetric techniques and partial least squares (PLS-1) multivariate analysis. In this study, PLS-1 was applied to matrices made up of fluorescence excitation and emission spectra (EEM) and with fluorescence excitation, emission, and synchronous spectra (EESM) of tocopherols dissolved in hexane: diethyl ether (70:30 v/v). A calibration set of 55 samples based in a central composite plus a full factorial plus a fractionated factorial design was constructed. Read More

    A simple and rapid reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography method for determination of alpha-, (beta + gamma), and delta-tocopherols in edible plant oils has been developed. Oils are diluted in 2-propanol and injected directly onto Symmetry C18 column. Methanol and acetonitrile (1:1) are used as a mobile phase. Read More
    NIR spectroscopy and partial least-squares regression for determination of natural alpha-tocopherol in vegetable oils.
    J Agric Food Chem 2005 Sep;53(18):6980-7
    Faculty of Chemistry, Nicolaus Copernicus University, ul. Gagarina 7, 87-100 Toruń, Poland.
    Near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy and partial least-square regression were used for determination of alpha-tocopherol in edible oils after extraction with ethanol. The standard error of calibration and the standard error of prediction were calculated for evaluation of the calibration models. The chemometric calibration model was prepared in spectral region 6500-4500 cm(-1) for standard alpha-tocopherol solutions (0. Read More
    Simultaneous analysis of riboflavin and aromatic amino acids in beer using fluorescence and multivariate calibration methods.
    Anal Chim Acta 2008 Apr 6;613(2):207-17. Epub 2008 Mar 6.
    Faculty of Commodity Science, The Poznań University of Economics, al. Niepodległości 10, 60-967 Poznań, Poland.
    The study demonstrates an application of the front-face fluorescence spectroscopy combined with multivariate regression methods to the analysis of fluorescent beer components. Partial least-squares regressions (PLS1, PLS2, and N-way PLS) were utilized to develop calibration models between synchronous fluorescence spectra and excitation-emission matrices of beers, on one hand, and analytical concentrations of riboflavin and aromatic amino acids, on the other hand. The best results were obtained in the analysis of excitation-emission matrices using the N-way PLS2 method. Read More
