The article discusses quick method for the preparation and gas chromatography (GC) analysis of human plasma fatty acid methyl esters. The major objective of any GC method is the separation of the most critical sample components. There has been an ever-present interest within the chromatographic community for the introduction of faster techniques. It is well-known that fast GC techniques are characterized by a minimization of analyte band broadening, producing rapid and narrow peaks. Present day fast GC applications are generally achieved with 10 millimeters by 0.1 millimeter ID by 0.1 mumeter (film thickness) columns.
