The article focuses on the improvement of the analysis of biodiesel using Capillary Flow Technology. The author explains that the analysis of glycerins in pure biodiesel can be improved using a retention gap attached to the analytical column with a Capillary Flow Technology Ultimate Union. The Capillary Flow Technology Deans switch was used to perform heart cutting 2-D gas chromatography (GC) technique for the analysis of fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) content in biodiesel blends.
