Analysis of Sodium & Potassium in Fatty Acid Methyl Esters (FAME)

In FAME, Sodium (Na) and Potassium (K) may be present due to the presence of catalysts used during its production. Excessive amount of Na/K may form abrasive solids and lead to formation of deposits on the injectors and valves and cause clogging. This application note reports the analysis of Na and K in FAME prepared from palm olein and coconut oil using Flame AAS.
